FASET (Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training) has teamed up with the CSCS skills card scheme

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.

The partnership between FASET and CSCS means that everyone who works at height – using equipment such as safety nets, edge protection and stair towers – will have the opportunity to move over from their current CSCS card to the new FASET card at the start of this year.

The transfer is FREE up to 31st July 2021.

It is the responsibility of the duty manager on any construction site to ensure that each individual is qualified to carry out his or her work safely. By ensuring the workforce are appropriately qualified, the FASET card will play its part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites.

The partnership between FASET and CSCS covers working at height, specifically installers of safety nets, stair towers, edge protection (tube and fitting) and platform decking.

 

Tony Seddon, Managing Director of FASET, csaid: “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.”
