New CSCS Partner Scheme Launch – FASET, Protecting Workers At Height

Wednesday, 17 February 2021

Reference Point and FASET are delighted to announce the launch of the FASET card – the thirteenth CSCS Partner scheme to join the Go Smart card checking platform operated by Reference Point. The FASET card provides an easy way to ensure those undertaking works that require Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training have a suitable qualification and are able to complete works at height.

FASET cards can be checked either using the Go Smart apps or the Go Smart online card checker as well as a host of other third-party applications that utilise Go Smart functionality.

FASET is a virtual-only scheme. This means that all cards issued are digital cards. Digital cards can be issued faster, are more environmentally friendly to produce and are lower cost than printed cards.

A particular benefit of a virtual scheme is that it provides a conduit for communicating with members.

When checking cards with Go Smart, as well as the FASET training it is also possible to surface related training booked through online training marketplace CourseSight.

The partnership between FASET and CSCS means that everyone who works at height will have the opportunity to move over from their current CSCS card to the new FASET card at the start of February. This transfer is FREE up to 31st July 2021.
