Holders of new plant skills cards are being turned away from sites because of confusion over the new colour scheme.
The new smart Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) cards are solid red or blue which differs to the former shaded colour designs.
Some holders of the new cards have been denied access to sites by companies who don’t realise the designs have changed and think they aren’t genuine.
CPCS administrator the NOCN Group has already come under fire for delays in renewing cards following technical problems since early last month.
The Enquirer understands the technical issues are being rectified and hundreds of cards are now being renewed weekly.
But the colour confusion is the latest glitch to hit the scheme.
