New CISRS Cards Poster Issued
CISRS has issued a brand new card information poster entitled ‘Have you got the right card?’ which is available to all free of charge by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CISRS poster has been created in order to provide a quick reference point for those wishing to ensure that individuals carrying out scaffolding operations on their sites have completed the relevant training, experience and assessment and are holding the correct CISRS card.
The poster includes the full suite of CISRS cards; Scaffolding Labourer, Basic Access Systems Erector (BASE), Trainee, Scaffolder, Advanced Scaffolder, Scaffolding Supervisor and Basic and Advanced Scaffold Inspector. It provides details of what each card should look like, how they are obtained and what work they entitle the card holder to carry out. It also highlights the importance of looking for the correct endorsement on the rear of the card for those operatives using Systems Scaffolding.
CISRS Scheme Manager, Dave Mosley said: “Having just re-issued the CAP 609 General Information booklet, which documents the CISRS scheme rules in detail, it made sense to update the posters which provide the basic information at a glance. They have always been popular and well received document and we will make them readily available to any interested party.
“The eye-catching poster is a must for all clients, employers, training providers, Health and Safety consultants etc. involved in the scaffolding sector.”
