Following the successful rollout of CSCS Smart Check, which enables cards across all 38 card schemes carrying the CSCS logo to be verified using the same platform, CSCS has announced that its previous app ‐ ‘Go Smart’ ‐ will be turned off on 31 March 2024. CSCS Smart Check incorporates API technology allowing it to be installed directly into site access systems, which can help to improve site safety and tackle card fraud. Any members still using Go Smart should put in place plans now to move across to CSCS Smart Check as soon as possible, as cards will not be able to be checked using Go Smart after 31 March.
Build UK’s How to be a Smart Site guide explains how to check cards using CSCS Smart Check and make sure everyone has the right card for the job they are doing on site. Members are reminded that CSCS does not issue cards for non‐construction related occupations, and it is the responsibility of the site manager to induct and escort non‐construction workers arriving on site without a card so that they can carry out their work safely.
