New app to simplify skills card checks
A new Construction Skills Certifications Scheme (CSCS) app can now be used to check all cards displaying the CSCS logo.
Mark Reynolds, Construction Leadership Council Skills Sponsor said in Construction Enquirer: “CSCS Smart Check forms part of the industry’s response to the findings of the Dame Judith Hackitt Review. It ensures people are suitably qualified, have the right training and experience for the role they are doing on site.
“Crucially, the information held by cards can be easily accessed by sites of all sizes and used to improve building quality and safety.”
However, clients or main contractors who want more information, assurance, and control are still advised by ECA to use the ECS Check service, available here, to verify the status of electrotechnical personnel.
