Survey to assess card scheme fraud on construction sites

CITB and CSCS are conducting an industry-wide survey to assess card scheme fraud and card checking procedures on UK construction sites.

All workers on construction sites should hold the correct qualifications and training for the type of work they carry out. Employers need to be confident that if they are shown a card it is genuine and that the person showing it has the appropriate qualifications to be carrying out their job on site. 

The production of fake cards for the construction industry was recently highlighted by the National Crime Agency’s prosecution of an organised gang dealing in false identity documentation which included a number of construction industry certification cards.

The survey focuses on:

  • Getting a better understanding  of the problems caused by fraudulent cards
  • How card checks are carried out on site and what information is verified
  • Whether smart technology could be better employed to help tackle card fraud

Anyone who works in construction can take part in the survey here.  

The survey will close on 31st March 2015.
