CSCS are encouraging cardholders to bring their cards to work on the 8th February for an industry-wide CSCS card audit.
CSCS skill cards certify that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out. The government strategy for the construction industry, Construction 2025, challenged the construction industry to solely recognise cards carrying the CSCS logo by 2020.
The Build UK and CECA Trade Associations have been instructed to check all cards on that day to ensure they are up to date and are valid so please remember to carry your CSCS card at all times and ensure it is up-to-date.
As well as promoting the value of SmartCard technology, this audit will highlight any expired or fraudulent cards that are in the system.
