New Poster to Easily Identify Scaffold Cards

The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) has published a new poster to help industry professionals identify whether a scaffolding site worker has the correct training and experience.

Covering all cards including scaffolding labourer, Basic Access Systems Erector (BASE), all scaffolder levels from trainee to supervisor and inspector, and those endorsed for Systems Scaffold Product Training Scheme (SSPTS), the poster contains details of what each card should look like, how they are obtained and what they entitle the holder to do.

The poster, which has been developed for display around office space and in site cabins, contains a brief overview of each CISRS card and is designed to help managers to ensure that scaffolders, labourers and scaffolding inspectors have the correct qualifications, experience and knowledge to work on-site, and make sure that individual sites are compliant and safe.

The poster is available for free from the CISRS website or by emailing enquiries@cisrs.org.uk.
