Frequently Asked Questions

What is ConstructSafe?

ConstructSafe is a way for employers to verify workers have the understanding and experience to be safe on a worksite. It is a combination of questions and a practical assessment of skills.

Is there a training course I can take prior?

Unfortunately, courses are not offered in regards to the ConstructSafe Testing. You are able, and encouraged to look at the ConstuctSafe Tier 1 Health and Safety Competency Test Framework.


What happens if I don’t pass?

If you don’t pass the first time around, you do get a second try at the test at no cost. If you do not pass a second time, you will be charged for the third attempt, but not the fourth. In short, every second test is ‘free’!


What do I get when I pass?

You will receive confirmation by email that you have completed and passed the ConstructSafe Testing. Your employer will be able to search on the ConstructSafe website that you have completed this testing almost instantly. You will also receive a card that states when the testing was completed and passed at a later date.
