From 1 April 2018 the Construction Skills Register (CSR) will remove occupational assessments as a route to new manager and senior manager cards. Candidates wishing to get a manager or senior manager card based on an occupational assessment must submit an application before close of business on Friday 30 March 2018.
The regular data produced by the Health and Safety Executive shows that the local construction industry can stand over a much improved health and safety record in recent years…
Through the Federation’s own model, Safe-T-Cert, we can rightly claim to be an industry leader in health and safety standards – and this is something we are keen to advance, in a way that brings direct economic benefit to construction companies.
In a similar way, industry sees itself as a positive setter of higher standards in respect of promoting environmental good practice in its work. The introduction of the requirement to have an environmental management system for all main contractors seeking public sector work is something that we support and we have developed our own construction specific tool, NVIR-O-CERT, to help embed this system.
The Construction Skills Register (CSR) has launched a new online card checker, a new quick and easy way to confirm the validity of CSR cards.
From April 2018 the Construction Skills Register (CSR) will remove occupational assessments as a route to new manager and senior manager cards. This is part of the CSR 3 year plan designed to further raise standards and improve health and safety across the construction industry in NI. The CSR 3 year plan has been developed to reflect the industry’s commitment to qualifying the workforce, coupled with the need to ensure continued mobility and acceptance of CSR cards across the UK.
