About the Construction Skills Register
CSR aims to raise health and safety standards
and reduce accidents in the industry by ensuring that all construction
workers undertake health and safety training every 4 years.
The Construction Skills Register (CSR) is a
register of construction workers who have completed the industry
approved CSR health and safety training course and assessment.
The aims of the CSR registration scheme are to:
Raise standards of health and safety
Provide recognition of skills, experience and qualifications attained
Reduce risks and accidents in the industry
This is carried out by ensuring that all construction workers undertake health and safety training every 4 years.
To become registered, workers must complete a minimum of one day
health and safety training, delivered by an accredited training
provider. Operatives can also be assessed to ascertain their level of
competency in their skill area. Applicants receive a photographic
identity card that provides proof of their health and safety training
and their skills and qualifications, if appropriate.
