CISRS UK & OSTS Spring Update

It’s been a busy March for the CISRS team, both here in the UK and overseas.

Simian Skill/Falk Prime Atlantic Nigerian Audit Success

Congratulations to Simian Skill and Falk Prime Atlantic for successfully completing their CISRS annual accreditation audit and carrying out their first Scaffolding Supervisors course delivered by OSTS Instructor Abid Gul at their centre in Ogun, Nigeria.

It was CISRS auditor Trevor Donoghue’s first visit to the training facility and he was suitably impressed. The centre offers a wide range of courses including offshore survival, fire safety training, oil and gas sector trade skills as well as CISRS OSTS Scaffolder Levels 1-3, Basic Inspection and Scaffolding Supervisor.

Trevor said: “Simian and Falk Prime Atlantic have a top-class facility here in Ogun, not just the practical areas and classrooms, but the whole package including medical support, restaurants, break out areas and welfare facilities. It is a credit to the management, staff and all involved”

During the visit, Trevor discussed with Simian/Falk the idea of promoting scaffolding as a career to the local government to establish if any funding could be made available to support local young people in the area and help them get into work.

CISRS Scheme Manager Dave Mosley added, “It’s great to see the centre moving forward with the introduction of Scaffolding Supervisor training. We hope that an upturn in fortunes in the oil and gas sectors will keep the centre busy and help to establish CISRS training within the region.”
