At Bond Scaffolding Ltd we take our responsibilities to training seriously. All our operatives are trained under the CISRS scheme for Scaffolders in the Construction industry. As such we directly employ Scaffold Supervisors, Advanced Scaffolders, Basic Scaffolders, Trainee Scaffolders and Scaffold labourers who all carry cards to show their level of training.
We employ an external consultant who provides regular updates and training on a range of topics. The Consultant has extensive experience of the scaffold industry and provides specific Health & Safety advice that many generic consultants cannot provide.
We are members of the Association of Northern Scaffolding Contractors which aims to improve Health and Safety and provide competence training. We attend regular meetings of the association where guest speakers are often present from the HSE, legal representatives and scaffolding experts.
In addition to this we hold regular toolbox talks to ensure that our operatives stay up to date with the latest scaffold news and rules. Some of the topics covered are asbestos awareness, maintenance of PPE, working at heights, rescue plans and reviews of recent issues in the industry.
