NASC & CISRS Set To Exhibit At Health & Safety Scotland 22-23 April 2015
The NASC and CISRS will be exhibiting at the forthcoming Health & Safety Scotland event and seminar being held at Glasgow’s premier exhibition venue, SECC, on trade stand 174.
NASC will be using this event – which attracts 3,000+ construction and safety industry professionals from across Scotland and the UK – to launch the NASC 2015 Safety Report. The report summarises accident data with analysis from the confederation’s 200+ contractor member companies, and is highly regarded within the sector and the industry as a whole.
In addition, NASC will be actively promoting the planned launch of SG4:15 safety guidance later this year, new safety guidance on slips, trips and falls (still the No.1 cause of accidents and injury within the scaffolding sector) and will be aiming to attract Scottish and Northern Irish scaffolding companies to consider the many benefits of joining the NASC.
NASC and CISRS staff will be on hand to discuss membership, auditing, NASC publications and scaffold inspection training, and will be available to answer queries from delegates.
The stand will also feature live demonstrations of the NASC’s innovative TG20:13 tube and fitting technical guidance eGuide, in both PC/laptop format and in mobile and tablet-friendly Android App versions. TG20:13 is now widely-accepted by principal contractors for use on sites across the UK.
The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) will be sharing stand 174 with the NASC, demonstrating the latest information on Scaffold Inspection Training (SITS) and CISRS Operative Training (COTS) scaffolding courses, along with information on changes to Part One, Part Two and Advanced scaffolding courses, following the launch of TG20:13 in February 2014. Copies of the current CISRS CAP609 General Information booklet will also be available, together with press releases to promote the work of the industry recognised scaffolding training scheme.
NASC MD, Robin James said: “The confederation is hoping to kick on from successful exhibitions in 2014 at the S&H Expo at ExCeL London, and the Health and Safety North event in Bolton. There is a huge amount of interest in what the organisation is doing, especially in TG20:13. And we expect a similar interest in the NASC 2015 Safety Report, forthcoming SG4:15 safety guidance, and other new and revised NASC publications designed to promote scaffolding best practice. We are looking forward to going ‘north of the border’ in order to showcase the organisation to the thousands of visitors anticipated at this Glasgow-based event, and we look forward to attracting more Scottish and Northern Irish scaffolding contractors into membership.”
CISRS Scheme Manager and NASC Training Director, Dave Mosley added: “There was a great deal of interest in scaffolding training at the events in 2014, and we expect similarly high levels of interest in CISRS training in Scotland. The fact that the majority of scaffolding firms in Scotland use system scaffolding means that we anticipate plenty of interest in CISRS Systems Scaffold Product Training Scheme (SSPTS) 2-day courses. We are very much looking forward to widening the reach of CISRS in April, in conjunction with NASC.”
Health & Safety Events were first launched in 2007 and have expanded rapidly with support from the industry’s leading stakeholders, such as the British Safety Council – who will be hosting a wide-ranging safety seminar over the two days, in a 384 seat auditorium within the confines of the event venue. The event was last held at the SECC in 2013.
Health and Safety Event organisers say: “The event brings together the very best of the UK health and safety industry at a superb, strategically-positioned venue. Combining ease of access for the visitor with affordability and measurable ROI for the exhibitor is what makes these events so popular.”
