FASET-CSCS Partnership Offers Benefits for At-Height Workers
The Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training association (FASET) has teamed up with CSCS, to issue FASET cards which display the CSCS logo for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry.
This means FASET now issues cards which display the CSCS logo, for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry. The new FASET CSCS card is available from 1st February 2021.
As the established trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry, FASET exists to help people who work at height to stay safe through the provision of expert guidance and training, with a range of exclusive member benefits.
The partnership between FASET and CSCS covers installers of safety nets, stair towers, edge protection (tube and fitting) and platform decking. Workers in these occupations will have the opportunity to move over from their current CSCS card to the new FASET. The transfer is FREE up to 31st July 2021. By ensuring the workforce are appropriately qualified, the FASET card will play its part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites.
Tony Seddon, Managing Director of FASET, commented: “The partnership between FASET and CSCS is a huge step forward for temporary safety systems on UK construction sites. If someone arrives to install safety nets, stair towers, edge protection or platform decking, the site manager can easily check they’re qualified just by viewing the details on their FASET card.
“Anyone holding this card has considerable experience and knowledge of temporary safety systems. Gaining industry-wide recognition of their specialist skills and level of qualification was a logical move with a big impact on height safety.”
Graham Wren, CEO of CSCS, added: “CSCS holds an important place in our industry, providing evidence of qualifications and training thousands of times a day. FASET has been maintaining safety, standards and best practice for many years and I am pleased to welcome them as the latest CSCS Partner Card Scheme.
“This is positive news for the industry, FASET cards displaying the CSCS logo align with the objectives of the Construction Leadership Council and are another example of the industry working together to achieve a fully trained and qualified workforce.”
