CSCS and affiliated card schemes are used by employers to check competence of those working on site. For card holding workers, these cards are proof that they have been trained in and are competent in particular jobs and skills. As well as an identification card, they are a passport to work. Many sites have "no card, no access" policies. More details can be found on the CSCS website.
