Following the statement by the Prime Minister last night, it is our view that, with the exception of essential works in support of the fight against Covid-19, non-essential construction work should cease.
The CEF are today issuing important guidance on Site Safety.
Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, CSR is asking employers and those responsible for checking CSR cards to be flexible if a card has recently expired. This approach is supported by CPD and the Government Construction Clients. This guidance will be kept under review on a regular basis during these exceptional circumstances.
From 29 February 2020 CSR will no longer issue any new or renewal Construction Site Visitor cards. Visitor cards issued up to this date will continue to be valid for 4 years from the date of the health and safety training.
CITBNI are running an NVQ 4 Construction Site Supervisor Development Programme from March to October 2020. The course is aimed at potential and current site supervisors and site managers working in the construction sector. The NVQ 4 Construction Site Supervisor qualification is accepted by CSR for a gold supervisor card.
