NASC & CISRS Support AIF Working Well Together – Working Well at Height Campaign Event
Both NASC and CISRS are very pleased to have taken an active role in the recent Roof Work and Work at Height training event, which was organised by Access Industry Forum (AIF) as part of the Working Well Together campaign.
The free half day event was aimed at offering small construction companies and self-employed builders, support, advice and up-to-date industry guidance – hosted by NASC member and CISRS approved training provider, LTC Training Services at their centre in Plymouth on Friday 31st March.
The event attracted lots of attention from the construction sector, including several representatives from the HSE, and consisted of talks and demonstrations covering work at height, roof ladders, powered access, scaffold inspection, prevention of internal and external falls, and tower scaffolds. Attendees also had the opportunity to ask questions of the industry experts present, including an HSE inspector.
Neil Gray, lead scaffolding instructor at LTC Training delivered the basic principles of scaffold inspection session. He said: “I’m delighted that LTC were chosen to host this important event and great to see so many people were interested in the various topics discussed. The feedback we have received to date has been extremely positive. I delivered the CISRS/NASC demonstration and was delighted by the interaction of the visitors.”
NASC Director of Training and CISRS Scheme Manager, Dave Mosley was in attendance. He said: “Both CISRS and NASC (as an active member of the AIF), are always keen to support the Working Well Together initiative – particularly an event aimed at safer working at height.”
