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.
The Construction Skills Register will now accept IOSH’s Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Site Managers course for all management and professional level cards.
From 31 December 2020 all Construction Skills Register (CSR) skilled cards or above that were originally issued on the basis of an occupational assessment and Industry Accreditation will expire on 31 December 2024. Candidates will then have to have registered on or achieved an NVQ Level 2 qualification or higher to continue to be issued a CSR card based on their occupation.
There is only one week remaining before the Construction Skills Register (CSR) removes all occupational assessments, including supervisors. From 1 September 2019 all new blue and gold card applicants will be required to hold an NVQ Level 2 qualification (or higher) relevant to the card holder’s occupation. Health and safety training will continue to be required.
