Digital platform set to streamline credential checks and tackle modern slavery

By Catrin Jones02 March 2023 is a new platform that has been launched to monitor credential checks and help tackle modern slavery with a single source of trusted and verified identity, skills and competency data.

The company says that skilled workers, subcontractors and main contractors will now have the opportunity to join the platform, which consists of two components.

The first is a free app that enables skilled workers to digitally store and present their verified identity, work history and credentials to site managers across every project they work on.

The second is a portal for contractors and subcontractors to set standards, get full visibility of the total supply chain and ensure workers have the right credentials.

The digital tool aims to use its platform and partnerships to support the industry in reducing modern slavery by providing free right to work checks for its members. It also hopes to address the skills shortage and plug gaps in mental health support in construction by reducing paperwork that can be a cause of workplace stress.

Martin Ward, co-founder and managing director of, said, “We have created a platform that can connect any credentials across the industry and place these with the worker. We then allow contractors to set credential standards needed to attend site and match the two. This massively improves transparency and removes lengthy onsite verification, as the credentials are verified at source.”

UK-based contractor Willmott Dixon has already signed up as an ambassador, mandating the digital platform across their supply chain. is now calling on the wider supply chain, including awarding bodies and trade associations, to help tackle this issue in the industry.
