The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (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 scaffolding practice.

By understanding what to expect from an NASC member you can obtain a high level of reassurance that when you employ an NASC member to carry out scaffold work or supply scaffold equipment you are making an informed decision, you know what to expect, your expectations are met and of course ultimately you are making the right choice.

Numerous pro-active main contractors and clients are already insisting that their scaffolding contractor is a NASC member. Click here for more details.
