Who We Are

FASET is the trade association and training body for the safety net rigging and temporary safety systems industry

FASET has been growing in membership as contractors, manufacturers and trainers continue to recognise the benefits of being associated with the high standards represented by the association. All members undergo a rigorous audit which is now accredited by SSiP and is therefore mutually recognised with other health and safety assessment schemes.

FASET Members work collectively to create a great amount of free to access guidance which can be downloaded from this website.  The guidance created provides good working practices for contractors and provides understanding of the industry for clients.

CSCS Cards

FASET Training courses are designed to enable candidates to obtain a CSCS Red Trainee Card which can be changed for a CSCS Blue Skilled Worker Card once experience has been gained and the candidate has passed a thorough assessment.

The CSCS Blue Skilled Worker Card is the only evidence that an operative has undergone extensive training and assessment in the relevant proficiency.  The training courses that FASET run result in the following cards:

  • Safety Net Rigger
  • Edge Protection Operative (tube and fitting type systems)
  • Stair Tower Operative
  • Platform Decking

It is common for the Edge Protection and Stair Tower disciplines to appear as an endorsement on the Safety Net Rigger Card.

Please bear in mind that the CSCS card is not evidence that the card holders company / employer is a member of FASET – please click here to check.

Please ask to see a company’s Annual FASET Audit Certificate before they commence operations on your site.
