How will Reset save me time and money?

A Reset cardholder’s competences can be checked in less than a minute which means they can arrive at their place of work more quickly. This saves them time so they can get more done. For a cardholder or their employer their overall cost-savings are usually substantially higher than their monthly subscriptions. Verifiers can use Reset services FREE of charge. Verifiers also save time and money - checking qualifications and competences with Reset takes a fraction of the time and administration resources consumed by traditional verification methods.

Why is my Asbestos Awareness qualification showing as expired when my certificate shows it still in date/no expiry date?

In light of the 2012 update to the Control of Asbestos Regulations Reset made changes to the way it manages and displays Asbestos Awareness qualifications on cardholders’ profiles.

Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012 establishes the need for asbestos training in general, and states that such training needs to be;

-          given at regular intervals                                                                                                  

-          adapted to take account of significant changes in the type and nature of the work

-          provided in a manner appropriate to the risks involved, ensuring the employees are aware of the findings of the risk assessment and any relevant air monitoring

The accompanying ACoP L143 – Work with Materials Containing Asbestos paragraphs 264 to 272 state that refresher training should be given at least every year.

To ensure that you are complying with your statutory obligations and in order to assist  Verifiers (hospitals, airports, universities etc.) in their compliance with these regulations and guidance Reset has changed the way that it handles Asbestos Awareness Qualifications.

Reset will display Asbestos Awareness qualifications as expiring 1 year after the date they were awarded. This applies to all future certificates received as well as existing qualifications on cardholders’ profiles.

Due to these changes you may find that you start receiving notifications of expiry about Asbestos Awareness qualifications for your individuals that you were not receiving before.

You can check the status of your individuals’ Reset profiles at any time by logging in to the Verifier section of the Reset website and entering their card number and CVC code.

Reset also has a training division that can help you book Asbestos Awareness full or refresher training for your staff. Every Cardholder would be entitled to a 5% discount from the training cost and any qualification booked through Reset is automatically added to the cardholder’s profile as it is issued.

Why must I give my email address and a password to check the details of a cardholder?

Every online check of cardholder details is logged and stored on our secure servers. The system requires an email address and password to identify the person carrying out the check. Should a future incident occur, for your protection, the log can provide proof of when a check was made and by whom.

Will my personal details be secure?

Yes. All cardholder and verifier details are stored on secure servers. Information can only be accessed by authorised cardholders and registered verifiers. No information is shared with any other party.
