CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme)

CSCS was set up to help the construction industry to improve quality and reduce accidents. CSCS cards are increasingly being demanded as proof of occupational competency by contractors, public and private sector clients and others. In many instances access to a construction site cannot be achieved without one. The cards cover all of the construction trades operatives and professional consultants and show evidence that an awareness of health and safety issues has been achieved and a qualifying examination have been passed. Summers Inman Surveyors, Project Managers and CDM consultants are CSCS registered.
