If you search the web or look in a telephone directory, you’ll soon find that there are plenty of Horsham scaffolding companies offering erection and hire services, both in the Horsham area and further afield. With so many different scaffolding companies in Horsham, it’s vital to be sure that the one you choose is competent to carry out the work required.
Legally, any scaffolding worker has to be competent in scaffold erection, dismantling and alteration. However, if you’re unfamiliar with the scaffolding industry, it can be difficult to know whether your Horsham scaffolder’s claims of competence are true.
Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to check the credentials of any Horsham scaffolder, by checking whether they hold a Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) card. Any scaffolder in Horsham who holds a CISRS card has been officially accepted as being competent to carry out erection, dismantling and alteration of scaffolding.
So before you give the go-ahead to any Horsham scaffolding company, ask to see their staff members’ CISRS cards before you proceed. If you’re in any doubt about the validity of a CISRS card you’re shown, you can confirm its status by calling the CISRS helpline on 0870 417 7223.
