The scaffolders comprised of 11 men and one woman they have worked on sites throughout Asia. They undertook the in-depth and informative training at the AIS / Black Cat JSC Ltd a CISRS-approved training centre in Vang Tau.

Thuyen Cao, Deputy Head of the Scaffold Department at Black Cat JSC Ltd, said: “It is great to see the introduction of an international scaffolding card scheme in Vietnam as this will bring scaffolding to new levels of safety and skills.”

Dave Mosley, CISRS Scheme Manager, added: “It’s excellent that AIS and Black Cat are forging ahead with CISRS OSTS training in Vietnam. They have been training steadily since gaining their accreditation to deliver scaffolding courses, predominantly Level 1 scaffolder and Scaffold Inspection and it is very positive that they have now added the Supervisors course to their programme.

“It is also worthy of note that Ms Chi Le has become their 2nd female scaffold inspector in as many months. Well done to all concerned.”
