CISRS has strengthened its management team through the appointment of a hugely experienced scaffolding industry professional.
CISRS has today announced that Tony Barry, who has worked in the industry for 40 years – the most recent 20 of which have been with the CITB, takes up the position of CISRS Compliance Manager.
In his new role, Tony will have the primary responsibility for the development and review of course content, Scheme accreditation criteria, auditing procedure and scheme policy, ensuring that they remain high quality, cost effective and ‘fit for purpose’.
CISRS said that Tony will also be heavily involved with the Scaffolding Apprentice Trailblazer review due to take place later this year. Having delivered many apprenticeship programmes over the years he will no doubt offer a unique insight into the training and assessment process.
Talking about his CISRS role, he said: “I’m looking forward to promoting the scaffolding industry as an exciting opportunity for all to become competent, valued and skilled members of the construction industry workforce.
“I’m also relishing the opportunity to review CISRS Scheme content. Standardised training such as the CISRS Scheme helps ensure a safe working environment through continually looking to enhance the training requirements to mirror new industry innovations and development.”
In his new role, Tony will work closely with CISRS Managing Director Dave Mosley.
Tony started working with NCC Midlands (CITB) around 20 years ago around the same time Dave Mosley began working with CISRS. They have worked together on several working parties over the years and already have a good working relationship
Dave said: “Myself, the Directors and the CISRS staff are really pleased to have Tony on the team. He has a wealth of industry knowledge and experience which will be a massive boost to CISRS.
“He has really hit the ground running, currently revising the CISRS Training modules to reflect the changes to TG20. There is plenty more to come with course content and scheme accreditation reviews in the pipeline.
“We know he will bring the same enthusiasm, professionalism and rigour to CISRS as he that he has shown in his various roles at CITB in the last 20 years.”
