Jersey Safety Awareness Test
Welcome to the home of the JSAT scheme.
JSAT is an on-line basic health and safety awareness test. It is not an examination of an individuals' competency, but is intended to raise awareness of health and safety issues in construction.
The Jersey Safety Awareness Test (JSAT) can assist employers in complying with the general duties placed on them under Articles 3 and 5 of the Health and Safety at Work (Jersey) Law 1989 and the Health and Safety (Management in Construction) (Jersey) Regulations 2016.
Whilst the answers provided give advice on the legal requirements, they should not be taken as authoritative or comprehensive. They do not take the place of the actual Law and Regulations, copies of which can be accessed via jerseylaw.je
Taking the test
Employees can take the test:
- through their employer, or
- at a Registered Testing Station
Individuals and sole traders must take the test at a Registered Testing Station. This includes companies where the only employees are the directors.
Employers must register via the Employers' tab at the top of the page, or arrange for their employees to take the test at a Registered Testing Station.
The JSAT test:
- is valid for three years, then must be retaken
- will issue a certificate when taken and passed through their employer
- will issue a credit card style card when taken and passed at a Registered Testing Station
- currently has one competence level
- is only available in English
Please note: you cannot take the test with your employer and collect a card from a Registered Testing Station.
The tests are:
- free when taking the test online at their employer’s offices
- will incur a charge when taken at a Registered Testing Station. See 'Testing Station' tab above for current prices
Sample question resources are available to candidates, in English only, via the JSC and JSAT websites or by using the tab at the top of this webpage.
