If you are looking to gain or renew an Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) card, you will need to either complete a Health, Safety and Environmental Assessment or hold a ‘Valid Exemption’ – meaning you hold a qualification that meets or exceeds the required level of health and safety knowledge.

Our IOSH Working Safely awareness course with an invigilated exam is an approved ‘Valid Exemption’ and will allow successful candidates to complete their ECS-card applications quickly and more efficiently than using alternative routes.

The IOSH Working Safely online awareness course and exam has been designed to give electricians, electrical trainees, electrician’s mates, electrical improvers and anyone needing to access construction sites in an electrical capacity a streamlined, cost-effective and direct approach to gaining their ECS Health and Safety ‘Valid Exemption’.

Working through the following learning outcomes,  covering what you need to know to pass your exam. 

Lesson 1. 

Working Safely.

Lesson 2.

Defining Hazard and Risk.

Lesson 3.

Identifying Common Hazards.

Lesson 4.
Improving Safety Performance. 

There are test-your-knowledge and hazard-spotting exercises and more than 200 practice test questions to help reinforce the course material.

Our practice mock exams are considered some of the best in the industry and give you an idea of what to expect in the final IOSH Working Safely exam.

Tutor support is available should you need it.

You will be given an in-depth overview of what to expect on your exam day, helping you to fully prepare.

On successfully passing the IOSH Working Safely exam, your results will be emailed to you the same day, with your hard-copy certificate arriving within 21 days from your exam date. To help speed up your ECS-application process, we will also email you a scanned copy of your certificate.

If you are planning or thinking about working in the electrical industry, you may have either heard about or been told about an ECS card. It is similar to a CSCS card but designed specifically for the electrical sector. 

The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) use cards to verify the competency of electrical workers and are used by construction sites as a pre-requisite for gaining site access and from my experience, this also extends to large manufacturing, industrial premises, schools and government buildings. Even if you are not planning on working on one of these types of sites today, it still might be worth considering starting the ECS application process.

And, if you are new to the industry, most recruitment agencies and job advertisements include an ECS card as a requirement. 

The type of card you apply for will depend on the qualifications and experience you have.  If you are already a fully qualified electrician you will want to apply for a JIB Gold Card, whereas if your new or in training it will be the  Labourers or Trainee Card.

To apply for your ECS card, you will need to have completed an approved Health and Safety course to complete the application process. Our IOSH Working Safely course with invigilated final examination is an approved Health and Safety exemption. 

The following link will take you to the ECS website showing you all the different Health and Exemptions available.

ECS website

Your ECS card will show a current photo ID of yourself proving your identity. The card will also show your approved occupation e.g. electrical labourer, trainee, or approved electrician. The more experience and qualifications you gain you will be able to move up the different levels of the scheme. 

Our IOSH Working Safely course with local invigilated examination is often combined by candidates with the 18th edition IET wiring regulations. They take both examinations on the same day. 

The complete process can be broken down using the following stages:

Stage 1

Obtain an ECS-approved Health and Safety ‘Valid Exemption’. The IOSH Working Safely with invigilated classroom-led exam meets the ECS requirements as a ‘Valid Exemption’.

Stage 2

Register for a MyECS account through the ECS website. You will make your application through your MyECS account. At this stage, you will need to show you hold the appropriate qualifications for the card you are applying for – this will include your IOSH Working Safely certificate. These are uploaded as scans. You will also need to provide good-quality digital photographs for your card.

Stage 3

Complete the application process and pay the appropriate fee this is around £22. There is currently a two to three-week processing timescale for ECS-card applications.

What is in the final examination?

Your final IOSH Working Safely exam will be broken down into two parts with a combined assessment time of 30 minutes.

Part A – Multiple-choice question paper. The pass mark is 20 out of 33 correctly answered questions.

Part B – Multiple-choice, hazard-spotting exercise. The pass mark is 10 out of 16 correctly answered questions.

To pass, you must achieve 30 out of 49 across both assessments.
