Bermar aims to have all operatives and site staff CSCS card carriers. Periodically we launch a campaign and aim at 100% compliance. We recently achieved 98%.
There is always a failure rate because people are absent or fail the test.
Bermar feels that it is necessary to employ staff without the Card and train them to pass. If contractors simply refuse to employ non-card carriers then no training would take place.
There is also the question of trainees and apprentices who must be trained to pass. This month our Construction Director, Steven Ludkin and Commercial Director, Mike Kelly, will lead the latest campaign.
