Build UK is the leading representative organisation for the UK construction industry who work with clients, main contractors and specialist contractors and more than 40% of UK construction companies. The body works primarily with their members, partners and sub-contractors to drive change that strengthens the sector.
Since 2017, Build UK’s position confirmed that the CISRS Scaffold Supervisor/ Manager qualification is an accepted equivalent of the mandatory Supervisor/ Management training for our Scaffold Supervisors, instead of the SiteSafetyPlus SSSTS or SMSTS qualification.
A growing number of our clients are requesting scaffold supervisors to hold the CISRS Scaffold Supervisor/Manager and CISRS Advanced Scaffolder qualifications as a part of their scaffold policy.
We work with an affiliated CISRS Training Provider, Training for Construction (TFC), based in Edmonton, North London. Through this relationship we are transitioning on the SMSTS qualified Scaffold Supervisors to the CISRS Scaffold Supervisor/ Manager qualification before retiring the SMSTS qualification.
Training for Construction offers CISRS accredited scaffolding specific courses to employers and individuals, who wish to gain the essential qualifications for working in the scaffolding industry. All instructors are CISRS accredited and have many years of practical and training expertise within the scaffolding sector.
