There is a massive drive towards improving health and safety and towards limiting the number of accidents on construction sites in the UK. This is being headed by the MCG (Main Contractors Group) which is made up of the country’s top construction companies.
CSCS aims to register every competent construction operative within the UK not currently on a skills registration scheme. Operatives will get an individual registration card which provides evidence that the holder has undergone health and safety awareness training or testing. The time is coming when you might not be able to get a job without a CSCS card.
At Workmates we are committed to the MCG initiative and work through each stage of the application process with our workers, providing help and encouragement until the full certificates are received.
