If you’re an employee in the UK construction industry and have taken part in the necessary training to equip you with a Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) card, it’s vital to make sure that you always have your card to hand and that it is valid and in date. Without a physical CISRS card, you may not be able to quickly prove that you have acquired the skills and knowledge needed to work a particular role on a construction site, and the training you took part in could go to waste.
Your CISRS card displays a registration number that’s unique to you and the training you have taken part in. You can use this registration number to validate your CISRS card, and to replace the card if it gets lost or stolen. Of course, without a physical card to hand, you will need to look in others places to discover you CISRS registration number and to organise a replacement card being sent to you.
Find out here where you can find your CISRS registration number, to be able to validate your card and to qualify for construction roles that your CISRS training has equipped you to carry out.
