Here at Ecl-ips, we not only have a responsibility, but an obligation to ensure that the quality of our engineers remains a paramount and foremost goal.
An important aspect of these qualities is Health and Safety Competence, and we would like to announce the congratulations to two of our engineers, Stephen Gilbert and Adrian Waller, on their acquirement of their CSCS cards as proof of this.
For those who might not know, the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) was created to reduce the number and severity of workplace accidents and injuries in the UK’s construction industry. A unified, centralised system to ensure qualified and experienced people are competent to work safely on customer sites.
CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they do on site. By ensuring that the workforce are appropriately qualified the card plays its part in improving standards and safety on UK construction sites. Today, nearly all employers in the UK’s construction industry require new hires to have the appropriate CSCS card before they can begin work on-site, and in many cases before they will be considered for a position.
By helping our engineers to acquire these cards Ecl-ips is demonstrating its commitment to good health and safety standards across all of our work. Ecl-ips has also received the respected CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) accreditation.
This certification proves that we have demonstrated compliance with the CHAS standards which are in line with UK Health and Safety regulations and the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) core criteria. The CHAS accreditation also shows that Ecl-ips has complied with the Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) Regulations 2015, which are governed by the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Once again, congratulations to Stephen and Adrian, here’s to another 5 years of quality engineering!
