Q: How do I claim a CITB grant with Site Safety Plus courses?
A: If your company is a CITB Levy paying member you will be able to claim a grant back from them for each delegate that attends a Site Safety Plus course. These include:
- CITB Health and Safety Awareness,
- SSSTS and
- SMSTS courses.
In order to claim grant for the Site Safety Plus courses delegates need to make sure they have your company Levy Number and address details on the day of the training.
Each delegate will be given an assessment form where they need to complete section C on the course assessment reports giving their CITB Levy number and company details.
If however, for any reason delegates do not fill out section C on the paperwork then you can call the CITB Levy/Grant department on 0344 994 4455 who will help you.
Q: Do I need to renew my Green Labourers Card if I have an SSSTS / SMSTS Certificate?
A: You only need to renew your green labourers card if you want a labourers card as well as your SSSTS/SMSTS. There’s no obligation to hold a labourers card if you have a higher level qualification.
However, we advise you to check with any site you’re working for to see what they require, just to be sure.
Info on the different types of cards available on the CSCS website.
Q: How to find out what CSCS card you need and how to apply for it.
A: The type of card you apply for depends on the occupation you do. You can find out which card you need by going to CITB Card finder which will help you choose which card you need to apply for and which CITB Health, Safety and Environment text you need to book based on your occupation.

Cost – £36.
