ECS Question and Answer booklet

The information in this guide is for Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Assessments taken from 5 April 2021.

The electrotechnical industry is constantly striving to improve the health and safety awareness of everyone who works in the industry. The ECS Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Assessment was originally introduced in 2002 in compliance of the ECS’s affiliation to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) that requires anyone obtaining or renewing an ECS Card to demonstrate an acceptable standard of health and safety knowledge.

Passing the awareness assessment demonstrates that the minimum required level of health, safety and environmental knowledge has been achieved.
