The construction industry's standard health and safety test is to be revised in the new year, possibly causing firms to alter their safety signage.

CITB-ConstructionSkills will introduce its latest Health, Safety and Environment Test next April, replacing the current health and safety test that was taken by over 500,000 people this year. It will include new features, such as behavioural case studies.

Chris Little, CITB-ConstructionSkills product delivery manager, said: "Consulting with industry we have refreshed the question bank and the test structure to include new sections and questions addressing the changing needs of the whole construction industry."

Mr Little described the new test as being more robust, with more emphasis on safe working practices.

Last week, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and Gas Safe Charity introduced a new scheme, increasing awareness of carbon monoxide (CO) dangers.

The programme hopes to prevent the 50 accidental deaths, 200 non-fatal poisonings and 4,000 A&E visits that are witnessed each year due to CO.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801245772-ADNFCR
