Riggotts, Nottinghamshire’s road marking and Car park marking specialist has achieved the highest accolade possible in an industry quality benchmark. Riggotts has achieved a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) platinum certificate for enabling more than 90 per cent of its employees to carry CSCS cards.
This recognises the quality of work done by individual employees, ensuring that all workers have substantial health and safety knowledge. Introduced in 1995, CSCS is designed to significantly improve working standards within the construction industry, a crucial factor which has led to a reduction in the number of construction accidents. Riggotts’ dedication to training its line marking teams has seen the company’s CSCS certification increase from silver to gold and then platinum within the space of 4 months.
Nick Riggott, Commercial Director at family-owned Riggotts, said: “Platinum is the highest level of CSCS commitment certificate available and for us, this recognises the importance of our employees and keeping them working safely. “It is also a commitment to our customers that we only operate teams who are fully trained and capable of offering a professional and safe service.”
