London Underground to require CSCS cards

London Underground has announced plans to require all its contractors to ensure their staff are registered on the Construction Skills Certification Scheme or similar from September this year.

LU already has its own LUCAS card system providing information about workers’ legitimacy to work and verifying a basic level of health and safety awareness. 

CSCS cards hold competence and qualifications data that is important for site managers and supervisors to be able to verify. 

Because both card schemes use similar technology a single card can be used to allow site access to all of the information stored.

LU engineering information and competence manager Tom Healy said: “Insisting that workers on our sites hold CSCS cards takes our commitment to safety and competence to a higher level. 

“This will not only benefit workers and our customers, but also ensure that safety is improved and productivity increased on our sites.”
