Welcome to ISCE


The ECS H&S Assessment Process

ISCE-ECS-Card-Mock-Up-ImageCandidates will need to bring;

  • A minimum of a 9″ web enabled device in order to take the assessment. A mobile phone will not be adequate.
  • Photo ID; original passport, driving licence or existing ECS card
  • National Insurance Number – will need to be confirmed on the day

The assessment consists of multiple choice questions, randomly selected from a database of approximately 300. It is a ‘closed book’ assessment – no revision materials will be allowed into the exam room.

The ECS H&S assessment has 45 questions to be completed in 30 minutes. 38 out of 45 correct answers will be needed to pass the assessment.

The assessment comprises questions covering eleven topics. The numbers of questions randomly selected from each topic are:

6 – General Health and Safety at Work
4 – Manual Handling Operations
3 – Reporting Accidents
4 – Personal Protective Equipment at Work
3 – Health and Hygiene
4 – Fire and Emergency
5 – Work at Height
4 – Work Equipment
3 – Special Site Hazards
6 – Electrotechnical
3 – Environmental

Assessment Tests are final once submitted and cannot be amended by ISCE.

An ECS Question and Answer Book is available to help candidates prepare for their ECS Health and Safety Assessment. Due to the specific electrical content in the ECS assessment, books supplied by other agencies (CITB etc) are not appropriate. The ECS Question and Answer Book contains all the questions and answers from the database that is currently used for the assessment.

Please Note, We require candidates to obtain the question and answer book at least ten working days prior to sitting the assessment, to allow adequate time for preparation. In the case of in-company or multiple bookings, it is the Employer’s responsibility to ensure that this condition is satisfied.
