The CSCS Smart Check app has been developed by the 38 card schemes displaying the CSCS logo, of which the FASET CSCS card is one. The app is set to radically improve the construction industry’s card checking procedures and site safety.
The partnership between FASET and CSCS represented a huge step forward for temporary safety systems on UK construction sites. If someone arrives to install safety nets, stair towers, edge protection or platform decking, the site manager can easily check they’re qualified just by viewing the details on their FASET card.
The roll out of the new 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 can be used to check contactless chips in smart cards, as well as QR codes in both virtual and physical cards covering all cards displaying the CSCS logo. Its introduction will also result in some changes to the way in which employers check cards at the site gates.
The project team at CSCS has shared its first update of 2022.
Since December, the project team has achieved significant progress with both the development of the app itself and communication to the industry.
The development of the central secure database, to be used to verify the details of over 2.1 million cards, is now completed and testing of the database will take place over the coming weeks.
The development of the app itself is in its final stages, with integration into 14 card schemes already completed. Integrating the app across all 38 card schemes will be completed throughout February at which time testing will commence.
Over the coming weeks, the 38 card schemes are committed to keeping the industry updated on progress and everything you need to know about the CSCS Smart Check app. Regular progress reports, like this one, will be issued and CSCS is planning several online events to keep everyone updated. Invitations to these events will be issued in due course.
