CSCS reaches major milestone

CSCS has issued its millionth Smartcard. CSCS Smartcards were launched in 2010 with the aim of making cards harder to forge and enabling contractors to use them for other applications such as recording time and attendance, training, toolbox talks and inductions and integrating with other applications including access control, occupational health systems and competence management.

CSCS chief executive Graham Wren comments: “Now that the majority of CSCS cards are smart, site managers can take advantage of the technology by checking workers details using apps on their smartphones or card readers and link with their own training and HR databases. It makes the whole process of checking workers carry the right card for the job much easier.”
