NASC & CISRS Exhibiting at UK’s Largest Health & Safety Event: SHE Expo 2016 at London ExCeL, June 21-23
The NASC and CISRS will be exhibiting for the third year running at the UK’s largest and leading health and safety event – the Safety & Health Expo, June 21-23 at London’s prestigious ExCeL venue.
Visitors to the flagship 2016 Expo event – which attracts 15,000+ people and this year sees keynote presentations at the linked IOSH conference by BBC Chief Reporter Kate Adie OBE, Olympic oarsman James Cracknell OBE and ‘Rules of Engagement’ author and ex-forces Colonel Tim Collin OBE – will be treated to 100+ industry speakers, in six theatres over the three days (adding up to 60+ hours of CPD accredited education) and more than 350 exhibitors will be taking part, including NASC and CISRS on Stand S1850.
The 20-metre NASC & CISRS stand will feature a five-metre system scaffolding tower built by NASC hire/sale members, Layher Ltd, as an unmissable centre piece. And staff from both organisations will be on hand promoting the work of the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, NASC and the scaffolding industry training organisation, Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) to delegates attending the event.
Particular emphasis this year will be given to the recent launch of SG4:15 “Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations’ (a free download) and the 86-page SG4 You pocket guide which supports the guidance. SG4 is the confederation’s “core safety guidance” for work at height, and is widely recognised by the construction and health and safety industries, and supported by BuildUK.
In addition, the recently revised 20-page ‘Scaffold Specification Template’ – a free guide to managing and appointing scaffold contractors – will be available to view, along with other new technical and safety guidance, the influential NASC 2016 Yearbook, informative NASC 2016 Safety Report and CISRS training literature. And a selection of recent press releases, promotional material and publications will be distributed in an NASC/CISRS “goody bag.”
Furthermore, NASC staff will be offering demonstrations including an opportunity to sample the innovative TG20:13 eGuide – in both PC and android device formats – on the stand. And the new NASC & CISRS websites and promotional films/imagery will also be available to view on a 42-inch screen.
The Safety & Health Expo is run exclusively with the support of IOSH, RoSPA and the BSIF, and is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe. Safety & Health Expo organisers say: “The Safety & Health Expo has established itself as the definitive UK industry event, consistently attracting health and safety decision makers from multiple sectors with responsibilities across the UK, Europe and international markets. It is designed to meet the needs of the UK and the international health and safety industry.”
NASC MD, Robin James said: “Once again, we are back exhibiting at the SHE Expo – and now with an even larger stand. We are looking forward to reaching out to the construction and health and safety sectors at this huge event – hoping to spread the message and promote the good work of the organisation, helping to set the safety standard in scaffolding and access.
“With so much new and revised safety and technical guidance available to the scaffolding industry, the construction sector and health and safety professionals – including the revised SG4:15 ‘Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations’ and the on-going success of TG20:13 ‘Good Practice Guidance for Tube and Fitting Scaffolding’ (and its associated eGuide) – the NASC needs good industry visibility, aided by this high profile event. And there will be no missing our 20-metre stand this year. We are keen to demonstrate to event delegates what we are doing to improve safety standards as the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK and promote our role in the industry.”
CISRS Training Manager, Dave Mosley added: “CISRS is growing, year on year, with almost 60,000 UK card holders and 4,500+ OSTS overseas cardholders now too. This large-scale, London-based, international event gives CISRS an opportunity to tell the industry what we are doing to improve training standards in the UK, and globally with the CISRS Overseas Scaffolders Training Scheme (OSTS). We are very pleased to have a presence at the SHE Expo, and hope that people will come and visit us and engage us in conversation over the three days.”
