Statutory Compliance "RESET Scheme"

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how many schemes there are out there, we generally know of Arb Ass's Approved Contractors, CHAS, ROLO, CSCS....I'm fortunate enough to have a local hospital as a client, they, in their wisdom have decided to go, making it mandatory, with a new lot, RESET Certification Scheme. This latest bunch of schemers want to charge the contractors an; application fee, annual subscription fee and individual card monthly fee, which;

 

"No other card or system is compatible with Reset or Reset Access, only Reset cards"

 

I've now emailed them twice to ask with qualifications they expect me, and those with me, to have when on site. Guess what, no reply.

 

If, whatever you think of, our industry specific schemes, are blasted out into the wilderness, what is the point of joining (and committing financially)???:confused1:

 

Actually not confused, just down right grumpy....a bit more than usual

Sounds, and looks, very much like CSCS with references to H&S compliance, CDM Regs, Principal Contractors etc.

 

Shame they don't allow 'deemed to satisfy' (DTS), as do the various safety schemes under SSiP, even if you had to pay a fee for the privilege.

 

Very frustrating but sounds like a MUST TICK box to work on that site :confused1:

 

Cheers..
