Health, Safety & Environment Assessment

The ISCVE Sound Engineer ECS card scheme matches the requirements of the CSCS scheme, in that it is compulsory that all participants must hold an up-to-date health & safety qualification in order to be awarded with a card. This is designed to prevent accidents and to promote safety and quality of work.

However, to hold an ISCVE Sound Engineer ECS card you must pass the ECS H,S&E assessment. Unfortunately, the ECS scheme does not allow the ISCVE to accept a CSCS H&S assessment. The ECS H,S&E test is specifically designed to meet the basic health and safety requirements of electrotechnical personnel.

Those who successfully pass the ECS H,S&E assessment will be awarded with an ECS H,S&E Certificate which can then be used to obtain an ISCVE Sound Engineer ECS card within two years of passing the assessment.

Applicants who already meet or exceed the required level of H&S knowledge due to any ECS approved existing qualifications held, will be exempt from taking the ECS H,&E assessment. Such applicants will need to provide a copy of a current qualification certificate showing that they hold one of the approved exemptions.

Health, Safety & Environmental Assessment Costs

The cost of the IECS Health, Safety & Environmental Assessment is £40 + VAT for each assessment.

Health, Safety & Environmental Assessment Expiry

Once the ECS Health, Safety & Environmental assessment has been taken, an instant result letter will be received via email to the address provided by the delegate. This result letter will inform the delegate if they have passed or failed the assessment.

A successful ECS HS&E Assessment is valid for 2 years. An ECS card must be applied for within that two year period or a new assessment will be required before the application can be processed.

If the delegate has failed the assessment they will have to re-take the assessment, after further learning, in order to meet the health and safety awareness requirement for a card application.

Electrical Safety Unit

From January 2021, all ECS card holders will be required to complete an Electrical Safety Unit assessment as well as the HS&E assessment and ISCVE provides approved training in preparation for the assessment.

The cost of the ECS Electrical Safety Unit Assessment is £40 + VAT for each assessment.
