Scaffold booklet revised

The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) has updated its free-to-purchase CAP 609 ‘General Information’ booklet, which includes details of scaffolding operative schemes for both tube-and-fitting and system scaffolds.

At more than 60 pages, the booklet covers scaffolding management/supervisory training, scaffold inspection training, vocational training, record cards, grant aid, and funding for training. Some highly useful appendices are also provided.

CISRS training manager David Mosley said: “The revised booklet is a fresh, all-encompassing guide to the expanding, evolving, constantly improving CISRS scheme.

“We continue to work hard to provide the best possible scaffolding training in the world — aiming to reduce the risk of accidents and uphold the best possible work standards, keeping the UK at the forefront of the global scaffolding world. The new CAP 609 booklet is a very useful tool in this process — containing all the information a company, or potential scaffolding trainee should need.”
