Working in the construction industry obviously entails many inherent safety risks and reducing these is our number-one priority here at Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd. Part of this commitment to safety is our insistence that each and every one of our operatives holds a valid, up to date CSCS (Construction Skills Certificate Scheme) or CISRS (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme) card.
Astoundingly, scaffolding operatives' possession of such a card is currently NOT a legal requirement here in the UK but it IS a requirement of working for Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd. This allows us to be 100% certain that our operatives are completely competent in carrying out their work.
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'. For more than four decades, the organisation has been the industry leader when it comes to scaffold training and there are currently around 60,000 CISRS cardholders in the UK, with many more registered holders livingrand/or working abroad.
The CSCS is responsible for delivering training and certified qualifications right across the spectrum of the construction industry. After rigorous training and examination, trainees are issued with an official CSCS card, proving that they have displayed the competency required to undertake relevant working procedures safely and effectively.
Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd are always on the lookout for new additions to our team and currently have vacancies for Scaffold Laborers, Advanced Scaffolders and Drivers.
