CSCS and CITB launch new video guidance on applying for a CSCS card


Monitor Contractor Attendance and Worked Hours using a CSCS card and a Tensor system

Applying for a CSCS card is typically a fairly straightforward process, but in order to make it even simpler and easier to understand, CITB and CSCS have produced a new video that provides advice for individuals applying for or renewing CSCS cards.

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) provides proof that individuals working on construction sites have the necessary training and qualifications to carry out their work.

A CSCS card certifies the individual has achieved relevant qualifications and training. All workers on construction sites should hold the correct qualifications and training for the type of work they carry out. Holding the wrong card makes it difficult for contractors to check site workers’ qualifications and training.

Tensor CSCS Card Time and Attendance helps manage construction site access

Although CSCS cards are not site passports, health and safety cards or competency cards per se, construction workers and other people who hold a CSCS card can use their existing card to clock onto a Tensor Time & Attendance system and/or gain access to a construction site or similar, or use the CSCS card to gain access through turnstiles or car park barriers.

Within Tensor.NET there is a CSCS card wizard. This allows system users to quickly grant contractors access to their clocks and access control system.

One feature most companies will certainly appreciate is the possibility to fully customize badge creation, since the system allows templates for badges to be previewed by the user to see how their badge will appear, populating it with their personal details. Previewed badges can then be printed to any windows supported card printer.

The templates can be single or double sided, in landscape or portrait format and can include a variety of content types, including here text, images and barcodes.

If you’d like to find out more about Tensor’s CSCS Wizard, just contact our dedicated product team or Book a Demo, our representatives will be more than happy to answer every and all of your queries.
