ARCA now issuing Supervisor CSCS Cards
The Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) has announced that it will be making available Asbestos Removal Supervisor CSCS cards under the ARMI Skills Card Scheme.
Temporary Red cards and 5-year Asbestos Removal Supervisor Gold cards, are now available from ARCA, both as physical and virtual smartcards.
The Asbestos Removal Supervisor (Trained) red card is valid for three years and not renewable and the Asbestos Removal Supervisor gold card is valid for five years and is renewable.
Applications can be made by employers or individual supervisors for a card, with proof of the required training and/or qualification(s) for that particular card being submitted with the application form.
Discussing the cards on offer, Steve Sadley, Chief Executive of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) said: “With the addition of the supervisors’ cards, I’m delighted that we are now able to offer the full range of CSCS cards for asbestos removal staff. That is temporary and skilled worker cards for operatives, supervisors and managers.
“We continue to receive card applications daily, with virtual smartcards being requested by the majority of applicants. There have been some applicants who have left their application to the last minute so the availability of a virtual smartcard, which can be on their phone (after downloading the app) within minutes of the application being processed, has definitely been a benefit to them.”
