Construction Industry Training Board (CITB)
Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)
Proform Systems is committed to the CSCS training scheme with 100% of all directly employed site operatives obtaining the grade in 2012. David Pactor, Managing Director of Proform, confirmed that future years will be no exception with all employees being given the opportunity to obtain a CSCS Card.
CSCS has been in existence for over 12 years. It was started to help the construction industry get quality up, accidents down and cowboy builders out. These are still the scheme’s main objectives.
A CSCS card is the easy way to prove that you are competent in your occupation and have health and safety awareness. As it is the size of a credit card with your photo and unique reference number on it, you can easily slip it into your wallet to use as instant identification when you arrive on site
CSCS is fast becoming the industry standard. It is supported by organisations such as the Major Contractors Group (MCG), National Contractors Federation (NCF), Major Home Builders Group (MHBC) and Civil Engineer Contractors Association (CECA) all of whom are committed to a fully qualified workforce. Now major clients are also requesting that their contractors have a CSCS carded workforce. These include government, housing associations, NHS projects and private clients such as BAA.
