CSCS Smart Check

CSCS Smart Check is designed to improve the construction industry’s card checking procedures and site safety while also helping tackle card fraud.

Our cloud workforce management software has had a CSCS card checker in place for several years, but no system in the marketplace has been able to check all cards displaying the CSCS logo. As a CSCS IT partner, we now have a software integration (API) which will automatically verify a worker’s credentials across multiple trades and skills.

The Safety benefits alone of this new feature are huge and with more emphasis on right to work and relevant training, it is critical that qualifications and certification are validated.

When an operative is completing their online pre-enrolment or induction, they simply add their CSCS card information across any skills they are qualified for, and a live auto-validation will instantly take place.

On the basis that the cards are accepted they can continue with the next steps before completing their initial site visit. If the card is not validated it is highlighted to site management to investigate and if required, further information on tackling and reporting fraudulent cards can be found here:

The process is managed completely in the cloud which removes the need for any card readers or a separate CSCS smart check app saving unnecessary management down time.

CSCS smart check works seamlessly with VIS plug & play construction site access control products to ensure that your site safety and construction site security systems are efficient and reliable.

CSCS Smart Check Features

How can the CSCS Smart Check system help?

As an integrated solution with VIS site access control and software, CSCS smart check will;

  • Improve health and safety on site by ensuring the full workforce has the correct training and qualifications to carry out their tasks.
  • Streamline onboarding by carrying out checks before workers even arrive on site alongside a cloud based online induction tailored to your company
  • Ensure that there is no paper trail and details are verified and stored in line with GDPR
  • Provide live monitoring and restrict access for users with expired cards

What is happening to Go Smart?

Card checking platform Go Smart will be turned off on March 31st 2024.

After this date, attempted CSCS card reads via Go Smart will not work. All existing Go Smart users who wish to retain a card checking function as part of site induction or site access solutions should transition to CSCS Smart Check

Is there an app for CSCS Smart Check?

CSCS Smart Check can also be used as a standalone app, while a desktop web portal will be available prior to Go Smart’s switch-off. This allows a manual check and will create additional administration time to manage.
