Not everyone needs a CSR card

Who doesn’t need a CSR card?

While all construction workers should hold the relevant CSR card to access a construction site, people attending site to perform non-construction related occupations should not be expected to carry a card.

If you work in a non-construction related role, you do not need a card. Similarly, if you are on short-term work experience placement for less than 30 days you do not need a card.

It is the responsibility of site managers to induct non-construction related workers and those on short-term work experience before escorting them where appropriate so they remain safe on site.

This decision is supported by the following Construction Leadership Council requirement:

“Cards will be required by those working predominantly on construction sites undertaking a recognised construction occupation. Cards will not be issued in respect of non-construction related occupations”.
