Consultation with MEPA

The BICC discussed the introduction of skill cards for the construction sectored with MEPA as part of the consultation process.   Meeting was held on the 18th November 2015.

It was explained that staff members who visit construction sites on a regular basis should have a H&S Card whilst others who do not visit construction sites very often (such as members of the appeals board or case officers) should have the white cards (visitors’ card).  

It was clarified that MEPA personnel do not need to be in possession of  skill cards unless they provide a service to the construction site (such as surveyors/enforcement officers/land surveyors etc.)
