insiThe Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) has been chosen by Warwickshire-based Promanex (Civils & Industrial Services) as the preferred form of training for its employees.



The scheme was set up to improve quality, reduce accidents and provide better training for the construction industry.



Around 60 per cent of Promanex’s workforce have already been registered on the scheme, including 90 per cent of its management team. Promanex aims to increase the total number of employees registered to 80 per cent by the end of 2008.



CSCS registration cards will be issued to all employees who have undertaken the training and will act as a marker of occupation competence.



Ross McFarlane, health, safety and training manager at Promanex, said: ‘The CSCS is a proven method of measuring competency. The individual talents of our workforce are being recognised officially and the overall competency of the company can now be easily demonstrated.’
