Following several enquiries from the cleaning sector CSCS has issued the following guidance:
1. CSCS cards are not required when a cleaner is not working on a live construction site and is working within places such as site offices or welfare facilities.
2. CSCS cards are required when a cleaner is working on a live construction site, they can apply for either:
- A Labourer card – Cleaners who do general cleaning on-site should apply for this card. See https://www.cscs.uk.com/card-type/labourer/for further information on the requirements.
- A Blue Skilled card – Cleaners who perform specialist cleaning roles (e.g. industrial cleaners) should apply for this card. This will require a level 2 Certificate in Cleaning and Support Services Skills. seehttps://www.cscs.uk.com/card-type/skilled-worker/ for further information on the requirements.
