CSCS - the Construction Skills Certification Scheme

Before allowing workers onto their sites, most contractors and clients now demand proof of competence – and this can be provided by a CSCS card. All new and renewed cards issued are now Smartcards.  The card lists the holder’s qualifications and are valid for either three or five years. It also shows they have health and safety awareness.

The cost of a CSCS Smartcard is £30.

SmartCards include a chip which stores the printed information and can be read electronically.  This helps prevent forgeries, make cards easier to check and cut down on the number of cards that need to be carried.  Full details of the scheme can be downloaded below.
