Cool NASC NEWS: Calling all Scaffolding Supervisors!

NEWS: Calling all Scaffolding Supervisors!

CISRS are working directly with their cardholders and approved training providers to match up the demand for supervisor refresher training. Following the introduction of Supervisory CPD/refresher training on 1st March 2016, anyone wishing to renew their CISRS Scaffolding Supervisor/Manager card is required to complete the newly developed 2-day course.
Delegates on the two-day course will need to successfully complete a written test, several case study projects, and deliver a toolbox talk – all of which will contribute to their overall pass/fail assessment criteria.
CISRS Scaffolding Supervisor/Manager Training has been in place for over 5 years. The five-day course is aimed at personnel providing first line supervision for scaffolding contractors which could include Charge Hands, Foremen, Site Supervisors or Contract Managers. The programme covers similar topics to the CITB Site Managing Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) but with more of a scaffolding perspective and includes:

Health & Safety Legal Overview
Health & Safety Law Health and Safety Management
HSE ACOPs and Guidance Performance Standards
British and European Standards
NASC Safety and Technical Guidance TG20:13 & SG4:15 appreciation
Asbestos Awareness
Supervisory Skills Planning and Organisation
Materials and Logistics Competence
Allocation of Duties
Effective Supervision
Behavioural Safety Overview
Effective Communication (including basic presentation skills, briefings and Toolbox talks)
Risk Assessment & Method Statements

SMSTS is often the client’s default position when it comes to specifying Supervisory qualification on their sites, as such lots of scaffolding Supervisors are attending generic Health and Safety Supervisory courses rather than a scaffold specific one.
Dave Mosley CISRS Scheme Manager said: “SMSTS has been around a long time and is a good course. When developing the CISRS Supervisor course we tried to ensure that all of the essential topics were covered, but we also wanted to relate these to the trade itself as we feel it makes it a more interesting and relevant experience for the delegates.”
CISRS has announced that it will allow those operatives holding a current SMSTS certificate, a valid CISRS Scaffolder or Advanced card and a Supervisory Health, Safety and Environment test or recognised exemption to attend the CISRS 2 Day supervisor refresher course. Those who successfully complete the programme will be deemed eligible to apply for a CISRS Supervisors card.
CISRS Scaffolding Supervisory and Manager training is recognised by Build UK. To find out more about the CISRS scheme, please visit or email
