Preventing Accidents at Work with Your Roofer CSCS Card

Roofing CSCS Card

The roofing trade is one of the most dangerous in the UK building industry. A notable percentage of all injuries and deaths related to the building trade are caused by falls from heights, which makes the job of the roofer one of the top targets for CSCS Health and Safety awareness. The Roofer CSCS Card is a big step towards raising that awareness and ensuring that a predictable level of Health and Safety knowledge is present in the trade.

Accidents at work will always happen. The job of the CSCS is to ensure that they happen as little as possible – and that when they do, they are far less serious than they might otherwise have been. The industry wide competence, skills and Health and Safety knowledge accreditation, which includes the Roofer CSCS Card, is there to ensure that you have the tools to make your working environment as safe as possible.

Health and Safety, the Roofer NVQ and the Roofer CSCS Card

A pass in the Roofer CSCS Test is required for any Roofer CSCS Card application. You must also achieve the correct Level in the Roofer NVQ. If you have achieved a Roofer NVQ Level within the last two years, you may already have the Health and Safety knowledge required to pass the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test and apply for your Card. The Construction NVQ generally contains a Health and Safety module that can be used as a Health, Safety & Environment Test pass. If you would like more information about the “two year rule” pleased contact Construction Support Line.

How the Roofer NVQ Measures Your Competence

A Roofer NVQ, like any Construction NVQ, is designed to form a measure of competence in the real world. The emphasis is on the practical facets of your work and your ability to carry them out with skill and initiative. Each Roofer NVQ Level is a mark of your progression through the intricacies of your trade, beginning with Trainee and ending at Manager level.

As you attain your NVQ Levels, your skills base will widen to include ancillary capacities – like managing your own staff; recruiting staff; and developing customer care routines that set your business apart as a quality provider of roofing services. In all cases your Roofer NVQ can be marked on site, as you work, by qualified Assessors who are there to see that your knowledge and skills are applied to NVQ Level.

The Roofer CSCS Card and Your Career

As a guarantee of your Roofer NVQ Level (plus your attainment of a CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test pass), the Roofer CSCS Card is your passport to a better career. The UK construction industry gives its best work to Roofers who have a provable track record for quality and competence. The Roofer CSCS Card is your proof. In all cases, the employer who needs a new Roofer will prefer a candidate who has a good level CSCS Card: a Blue CSCS Card for Skilled Roofers, or a Gold CSCS Card for Highly Skilled or Supervisor Roofers.
