Changes to NPORS Construction Plant Operator cards

 NPORS are now able to offer a new NPORS/CSCS Red Trained Operator Card and Blue Competent Operator Cards as well as the traditional NPORS operators card.

If you have passed the Health, Safety and Environmental Touch Screen Test within the past two years then when booking your NPORS test, you have the choice of doing a standard NPORS card or a NPORS/CSCS card. 

If you chose to have an NPORS/CSCS card you will be issued one of the following dependent on wether you have a NVQ relevant to the type of test you have taken.

  • If you don't have an NVQ relevant to that item of plant, you will be issued an NPORS/CSCS Red Trained Operator Card that lasts two years. This is not renewable, so you will be required to achieve a plant NVQ within that time span to proceed further.
  • If you already have an NVQ relevant to that item of plant, you will be issued an NPORS/CSCS Blue Competent Operator Card that lasts five years and is renewable.


If you do not require the CSCS logo on your NPORS card, the option to apply for a Traditional NPORS card will still remain.

It is the employer’s duty of care to ensure that this training is provided according to the Regulation 5 of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 which states that employers must ensure all employees engaged in any work at height activity must be competent to do so. This includes, but is not limited to, professions such as:
