At Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd, safety is our number-one priority. That's why we insist that all of our operatives hold an up-to-date CSCS (Construction Skills Certificate Scheme) or CISRS (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme) card.
As the industry-leading scaffold training scheme for more than 40 years, the CISRS is the 'preferred scaffolding qualification of all the major organisations including CSCS, NASC, HSE, Build UK, UNITE and the largest scaffold systems manufacturers'. There are in excess of 60,000 CISRS cardholders in the UK, with a further 5,000 holders overseas.
The CSCS delivers training and qualifications across the construction industry. Once trained and qualified, course attendees are issued with a card that shows they are competent to carry out the relevant work in a safe, informed and effective manner. It is used to prove skills to a potential employee such as Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd, who can then guarantee that safety is always of the most crucial importance.
Though possessing a valid CSCS card is not currently a legal requirement in the UK, Mitchell's Scaffolding insist that all of our operatives carry one. We need to be certain that our operatives are fully competent in their work, allowing us to maintain our impressive record of unmatched safety levels in our varying workplaces.
We are always seeking to extend our workforce with intelligent, focused and dedicated operatives. For more information about working with us, check out our 'Careers' page and get in touch with our team.
