FREE TO USE DIGITAL SYSTEM ALLOWS INSTANT VERIFICATION OF ON-SITE ELECTROTECHNICAL WORKERS... Raising standards
T he quality of an electrical installation depends not only on the electrical contractor’s company registration but, crucially, the person carrying out the work. The Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) introduced the ECS Check service to give clients, project managers and contractors an easier method to verify the skills and experience of their electrical workforce This free to use digital system means a worker’s ECS card can be checked on- site, in real time. Not only does the ECS Check system identify and inform who will be on-site, it also allows monitoring to be undertaken quickly and simply. This means there’s no need to rely on emailed photos of cards or certificates. All of this information can be accessed through one online portal and on-site via the ECS Check app. This complements the ECS
virtual card which is available to all cardholders and can also be accessed free of charge via a smartphone app. ECS Check is recognised as a Licence to Practice (LtP) system in Northern Ireland under Procurement Guidance Note 01/16 and is helping contractors and clients to avoid unnecessary duplication of work. As a CSCS Partner Scheme, an ECS card is recognised and endorsed by the Construction Leadership Council, Build UK and both governments in Westminster and Stormont.
