The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC)
In December 2009, SAY Scaffolding Ltd achieved full membership status with the NASC. As you may be aware, the NASC is recognised as the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, producing a wide range of industry guidance for scaffolding contractors, their operatives and their clients.
Members of the NASC are strictly regulated to ensure a continuous high standard of practice. Support comes from every corner of the construction industry with numerous pro-active main contractors and clients already insisting that their scaffolding contractor is a NASC member.
In 2009 there were 65 companies applying to join the NASC. Out of these 65 companies, only 9 actually met the standard required and joined the confederation. Latest NASC statistics also show that almost 90% of scaffolding companies are not working to the industry standard. We believe that using an NASC member will only benefit your company as you can obtain a high level of reassurance by knowing what to expect, that your expectations are met and of course ultimately you are making the right choice.
