FASET – Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training – is proud to announce it has just issued its 100th FASET CSCS card.
The new FASET CSCS card was launched on 1st February 2021. As a result of a collaboration between FASET and CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme), FASET now provides CSCS cards to all construction operative who use temporary safety systems.
CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they perform. As the established trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry, FASET exists to help people who work at height to stay safe through the provision of expert guidance and training, with a range of exclusive member benefits.
Everyone who works at height and uses equipment such as safety netting, edge protection., stair towers and platform decking can move over from their current CSCS card to the new FASET card. The transfer is FREE up to 31st July 2021.
It is the responsibility of the duty manager on any construction site to ensure that each individual is qualified to carry out his or her work safely. By ensuring the workforce are appropriately qualified, the FASET card will play its part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites.
Commenting on the news
Tony Seddon, Managing Director of FASET, commented: “We’re delighted to have issued our 100th card within a month of its launch.
“The partnership between FASET and CSCS is a huge step forward for temporary safety systems on UK construction sites. If someone arrives to install safety nets, stair towers, edge protection or platform decking, the site manager can easily check they’re qualified just by viewing the details on their FASET card.
“Anyone holding this card has considerable experience and knowledge of temporary safety systems. Gaining industry-wide recognition of their specialist skills and level of qualification was a logical move with a big impact on height safety.”
