HEALTH & SAFETY

Health and safety is paramount in everything we do; and this emphasis is reflected in our excellent safety record and constant effort to improve.

Our excellent health & safety record is achieved through:

The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation

NASC

The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation

SAY Scaffolding Ltd has achieved full membership status with the NASC.

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.

Latest NASC statistics show that almost 90% of scaffolding companies are not working to this industry standard. This highest level accreditation guarantees your expectations are met and SAY Scaffolding is the right choice.

At SAY all of our employees are directly employed.

We continually undertake regular reviews of individual employee’s progress and training needs; and consider this to be vital to our continued commercial success. By monitoring our training needs we ensure that our team of professionals are fully qualified and trained to the highest standard.

All of our Scaffolders are CISRS registered and range in qualification from Part 1, Part 2 and Advanced, whose work is monitored by qualified CISRS Scaffolding Supervisors. In addition to their scaffolding qualification our operatives are also given the necessary Plant and Tool operator training they need to carry out their work (eg. Fork lift, Abrasive wheels, Mobile elevating work platform).

Where specific projects have dictated it we have also undertaken specialist training and are able to offer employees qualified in confined space working and personal track safety.

We increase safety awareness and competence with additional training through toolbox talks on a number of subjects such as: Working at Heights; Site Management and Safety; SG4 Full Body Harness Competency; Scaffold Inspection; Safety Awareness and Risk Assessment.
