The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) is very pleased to announce the addition of a Plettac Metrix to its suite of System Scaffold Product Inspection courses.
As the use of systems scaffolding continues to grow in the UK, CISRS has worked closely with several scaffolding manufacturers and suppliers to broaden the range of courses offered, whilst maintaining a standardised approach to systems inspection training.
This has resulted in the need for bespoke 1-day inspection courses for system scaffolds, which now includes Plettac Metrix.
The System Scaffold Product Inspection courses provide delegates with system specific technical information and include both a written theory test as well as a practical inspection exam and written report. Successful completion of all elements is required to pass the course.
“It is fantastic news that a CISRS endorsed inspection course is now available for TRAD UK’s award winning and revolutionary Plettac Metrix Scaffold System,” says Alan Slater, Head of Technical and Product Support at TRAD UK. “This will make it easier for our clients and main contractors to ensure their scaffolds are fully compliant and, most importantly, safe to use. Here, at TRAD UK, our aim is to produce and supply inherently safe systems which make life in the scaffold industry easier, to make measurable efficiencies on site without compromising health and safety, and this new course is a significant step in helping us to achieve that goal.”
The CISRS System Inspection courses are open to those holding a CISRS Basic (BSI) or Advanced Scaffolding Inspection (ASI) card. CISRS Scaffolders or Advanced Scaffolders that have had their card renewed via CPD and are holding an inspection endorsement are also eligible to attend.
David Abraham of Fulcrum Scaffold Safety Training, who helped to create the new 1-day course says “Our commitment to safety and industry excellence is encapsulated in the launch of the Metrix Scaffolding Inspection Course. We believe that education and comprehensive training are pivotal in ensuring the well-being of every individual working with scaffolding structures.”
CISRS is very grateful for the input of Fulcrum Scaffold Safety Training and TRAD UK in creating this valuable new course.
