CSCS Card training construction safety courses

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme cards, better known as CSCS Cards, were created in the mid 1990s to help make it easier to identify the skills of various members of a construction site team. The CSCS cards were also an efficient way of ensuring that everyone on site has passed a basic health and safety test and understands the fundamentals of safe working on a busy construction site. From 2010, it will be compulsory to hold a relevant CSCS card to work on a construction site in the UK.nnThere are various levels of CSCS card, depending on the skills and experience of the worker. Green CSCS cards, for example, are for construction site operatives, or labourers, while blue CSCS cards are for craftsmen and women, with gold CSCS cards representing advanced craftsmen and women. Even regular visitors to site can obtain a yellow CSCS card to prove their understanding of site safety procedures.nnThe key element of the CSCS card is the health, safety and environment test, which all CSCS card holders must pass to obtain their certification. Renown Training offer CSCS Card training in a convenient half day course that covers all the essential elements required for CSCS training, along with the CSCS safety test itself.nnThe CSCS card system does not just improve site safety, it also helps employers to significantly reduce their insurance premiums, since it can be shown that all workers on site are trained in health and safety and are prepared to take responsibility for their own wellbeing on site.nnThe CSCS Card is essential if you are seeking work in the construction industry, even if you have many years experience behind you, so contact Renown Training today for details of CSCS Card Training with our friendly and experienced team.
