App for rating asbestos operatives now available in the UK
Asbestos removal operatives now face the prospect of being publicly named and shamed for their shortcomings or praised to the hilt for their talents, reports the UK’s The Construction Index.
The Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) has made available a performance rating app for asbestos removal operatives.
The Asbestos Labour Feedback App, or ALFA, enables ARCA members to rate the performance and behaviour of short-term operatives supplied by ARCA labour supply members.
ARCA said that having a performance rating available, as well as certificate information, would provide contractors with a better understanding of the competency of agency operatives before they arrive on site.
With ALFA, a web-based application, ARCA contractors can rate operatives’ performance across nine categories, with ratings used to calculate an overall performance rating.
