  30. Johnson says:

    If your work site is given a prohibition notice, what does it mean?

    b. The site must undergo review to ensure the proper safety protocol are in place

    c. All personnel on the site must immediately cease work

    This question also confused me, answer C has been the most selected answer on some sites..

    • admin says:

      I get why this is confusing as both could be right, but b is the answer that would be the correct in the exam.

      • G says:

        Is this really true? if you google it this is what i cam across:If inspectors believe that your work activities give rise to a risk of serious personal injury, they may issue you with a prohibition notice.

        The prohibition notice normally requires you to stop that activity immediately. You must not resume the activity until you have taken action to remove or control the risk.

        • admin says:

          Agreed, these questions have been taken from CSCS exams and these are the correct answers given. I know it seems confusing but we can only provide the answers they want.

  31. jagjeet singh says:

    very helpful, gives you idea where you stand .

  32. G says:

    Can you check the correct answers for question s 8 & 41

  33. Harry says:

    Mock test gives you great awareness of the need to keep up to date with health & safety and not just on the day of your test, as we are all being responsible for one and other going home without injurys
