Erith go virtual…

Our commitment to pioneering modernisation practices has resulted in Erith championing a ground-breaking piece of new technology.

In collaboration with the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) and National Demolition Training Group (NDTG), we are the first demolition contractor to utilise the Virtual CCDO Smart Card within the UK. This technology now gives operatives a virtual card stored on their smartphone.

This is seen as a key development across our Industry; with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) now working with the creators of this technology, Reference Point, to include a smart card facility.

John Rawlings, a demolition site operative with Erith, was the recipient of the first card assigned. The card was issued on Tuesday 18th July; downloaded and scanned within minutes, for use on site immediately.

Personifying our core value of ‘Innovation’, this most recent incorporation of smart technology will; increase security, decrease the possibility of fraudulent occurrences and most importantly ensure the health and safety of all onsite through vigilant monitoring.
