CSCS set to roll out new Smart Check app
A new app, developed by the 38 card schemes displaying the CSCS logo, is set to radically improve the construction industry’s card checking procedures and site safety.
The CSCS Smart Check app represents a major step forward as, for the first time, all 2.1 million cards displaying the CSCS logo can be electronically verified using a single app.
The rollout of the app begins in April 2022, providing employers with a quick, easy and secure way of ensuring everyone on site has the right qualifications and training for the job they do.
The app will be free to use and available for Apple iOS and Android devices.
CSCS says that sites should require everyone working in construction to hold a card displaying the CSCS logo and they should be checking those cards regularly to ensure they are genuine and in date.
