About Health, safety and environment test for operatives and specialists
The CITB Health, safety and environment test helps the industry to improve its health, safety and environmental standards and forms a vital part of the requirement to obtain a construction industry scheme card.

This revision material contains everything you need to know to book, prepare for and sit the CITB Health, safety and environment test for operatives and specialists.

Content has been updated for 2018 to reflect legislation changes.

From January 2018 the test will be updated to include new question styles, to ensure you are fully prepared for your test alongside the GT100 revision book you can try the new question styles here. Please note there are no changes to the question content and therefore this book still remains valid.

The test includes behavioural case studies, and knowledge and specialist questions. The behavioural case studies are based on the core principles of the industry’s free film Setting out. The film explores what employers and sites must do for workers, and how workers need to behave and interact to constantly changing site conditions.

There are also separate revision materials to support the Health, safety and environment test for managers and professionals(MAP), so please ensure that you are revising for the right test.

GT 100 is an A5, perfect bound publication, printed in full colour. It follows the standard structure used across all CITB core publications (A: Legal and management; B: Health and welfare; C: General safety; D: High risk activities; E: Environment; F: Specialist activities).
