Construction Skills Certification Scheme chairman Trevor Walker has stood down after five years in charge.
The Civil Engineering Contractors Association said Walker played a “central role” in the success of the CSCS scheme and thanked him for his passion and significant contribution in driving safety awareness up the agenda.
For more than a decade the CSCS scheme has helped ensure that those on site have the competency and capability to do the job safely, helping to dramatically improve the image of the sector.
“With more than 1.7 million of the industry’s workers holding CSCS cards, the scheme is an exemplar of what can be achieved when the whole industry works together to achieve a mutual objective,” said CECA managing director Mark Roper. “Trevor Walker has played a central role in this success as chairman of CSCS. I want to personally thank him for his contribution to this achievement. We hope that the industry can now raise the bar even higher, working together to drive further improvements to the scheme.”
