Why is the CCDO Scheme going SMART?
Increasingly many Demolition/Construction Site Managers now request that workers hold the relevant CCDO card before being allowed access to site to carry out demolition related activites.
- Adopting Smart Cards will help improve Health and Safety on site by ensuring that operatives have the appropriate experience, skills and qualifications to carry out the role they are employed to do, whilst at the same time help to reduce and eliminate the possibility of fraudulent cards being used to access sites.
- Smart Card use greatly simplifies and speeds up the task of checking cards required of site managers at the point of access to site by means of a simple and easy to use App via a smartphone, tablet or a card reader attached to a PC/Laptop.
- If you are a self employed operative, you can use the CCDO Smart Card to keep training records and certification up to date.
All CCDO scheme Smart Cards are affiliated to the pan industry Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) and carry the affiliation logo accordinly, therefore eliminating the requirement for seperate or additional CSCS registration.
