NASC and CISRS set to exhibit at Safety & Health Expo at London ExCel 16-18 June 2015
The NASC and CISRS are set to exhibit at the UK’s largest and leading health and safety event at London’s ExCeL – the Safety & Health Expo, June 16-18.
Visitors to the 2015 Expo – which attracts 15,000+ people and this year sees presentations at the linked IOSH conference by Baroness Karren Brady, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, OBE and Sir Chris Hoy – will be treated to over 350 exhibitors, including NASC on Stand V2125 which will feature a five metre scaffolding tower built by NASC members, TRAD Scaffolding, as an unmissable centre piece.
The intention is to promote the work of the NASC and the scaffolding industry
training organisation, Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) to the construction and health and safety industries. Particular emphasis will be given to the forthcoming launch of SG4:15 – the confederation’s “core safety guidance” for work at height, in addition to the recent launch of the NASC 2015 Safety Report and the NASC good practice guide to tube and fitting scaffolding, TG20:13.
NASC and CISRS staff, member representatives, and scaffolding industry experts will be on hand to discuss access and scaffolding issues and industry guidance and publications. And there will be a range of NASC promotional literature and marketing material available, including the NASC 2015 Yearbook, the NASC 2015 Safety Report, CISRS publications, recent press releases, and an NASC/CISRS “goody bag.” NASC staff will also be offering demonstrations and the opportunity to sample the innovative TG20:13 eGuide – in both PC and android device formats – on the stand.
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: “We are thrilled to be back at the Safety & Health Expo this June, with a bigger stand for 2015, following an enormous number of enquiries, interest in the organisation, and dialogue with construction and health and safety representatives at the corresponding 2014 event.
“With so much new and revised safety and technical guidance available to the scaffolding industry, and the construction sector, including TG20:13 guidance for tube and fitting scaffolding (and its associated eGuide) and with industry keenly awaiting SG4:15 – the NASC needs to have good visibility at this high profile event. We want to demonstrate to the health and safety industry and the construction sector what we are doing to improve safety standards as the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK.”
CISRS Training Manager, Dave Mosley added: “CISRS is constantly engaged in developing and refining scaffolding training courses. This 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 Training Scheme (OSTS). We are very pleased to have a presence at the Safety & Health Expo, and we hope that people will come and visit us over the three days.”
