I havent been on here 4 ages, but always found a helpful bunch of scaffologists at the ready.
are there any firms that will invest in & train new employees, ive been scaffolding well over 10 years, in fact more like 15, but no qualifications to show for it.
I work around the south east coast but have no qualms travelling, for the right opportunity.
I know there is funding for the part 2 but thats no good to me without the part 1...

set your wisdom free

Q: Is a CISRS Scaffolding Labourer allowed to work on a scaffold structure, handling materials, whilst the job is being erected, dismantled or altered?


A labourer is allowed to work on a scaffold structure during erection, dismantling or alteration, however he must only be involved with the handling of the materials and not actually be erecting or dismantling the structure.


*Please note that the Labourer must only be working from a section of the scaffolding that is fully boarded and fitted with double handrails and toe boards.

Q:Does a labourer working for a scaffolding company need a CISRS card?


Even though this employee may never leave the floor he should still apply for a CISRS Labourer card. In order to apply he should ring CISRS helpline for an application form 0844 815 7223 and will need to complete a ConstructionSkills H&S test (tel 0344 944 4488) and complete the employer declaration/Labourer application form. When completed, the form will be returned with a photograph of the operative, proof of the H&S test, and a cheque made payable to ConstructionSkills for 26.50.
