ECS Check is a new online system - launched by the JIB - that allows main contractors and clients to verify the skills and qualifications of electrical personnel working on projects.
The service, available across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, has been introduced to give clients confidence that their contracts are being carried out by fully qualified electrical personnel.
The system complements the launch of the ECS Registered Electrician status, also launched this month by the JIB, to recognise electricians who are qualified to both NVQ Level 3 and the current edition of the Wiring Regulations.
Where a contract shows that the client will use ECS Check, employers can use the ECS Employer Portal to review and allocate the most appropriate staff to a particular project, based on the client specification.
Real time information from site access and audits will then be available to clients and main contractors via ECS Check, allowing them to review site personnel.
If you’re not already using the ECS Employer Portal, sign up now to take advantage of ECS Check services when they become available next month.
As an ECA member, an optional JIB membership is available for FREE. The benefits of joining the JIB complement the services provided by the ECA and help you to protect your most valuable asset - your employees.
