CISRS Accredited Training Centres Reopen

There are currently courses being delivered in 18 locations in the UK, with many more set to follow suit in the coming weeks.

Since June CISRS approved providers across the country have cautiously began to recommence training at their centres. There are currently courses being delivered in 18 locations in the UK, with many more set to follow suit in the coming weeks.

Prior to opening their doors, centres were required to submit detailed risk assessments and method statements (RAMS) with supporting documentation and photographic evidence outlining restrictions and precautions put in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, whilst delivering training.

These cover each step of the training experience from arriving at the centre, moving around the site, getting to classrooms, practical training areas, welfare facilities and getting back home safely. CISRS are working with providers to closely monitor, looking to identify any areas that may need additional consideration.

David Mosley, CISRS Managing Director and NASC Director for Training, said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has hit the whole industry hard; scaffolders, employers, clients as well as the training providers. There is still a lot of uncertainty ahead, but he sector has responded very positively and looked for ways to move forward in safe and productive manner.”
