Free safety report confirms â€˜regulated scaffolders worksafer'
23 January 2013
The NASC has recently published its annual safety report which again confirms that by using regulated scaffolding firms you are certain of receiving a higher and safer standard of scaffolding practice than that carried out by non regulated scaffolding firms
As a criteria of membership it is compulsory for all NASC members companies to submit their figures.
New to the report this year is the addition of the correlation between the NASC's figures for scaffolding fatalities and those published by the HSE for scaffolding and construction in general.
â€œThe statistics speak for themselvesâ€ states Bob Whincap, President of the NASC. â€œOur Safety Report is testament to the fact that NASC companies perform safer. Our safety report is forensic in its detail, we want to be able to objectively show people that what the NASC is doing does make a difference and that before choosing to adopt an NASC only policy within your organisation you are making an informed choiceâ€.
Compared to the previous year's report, the NASC Safety Report shows that there was a staggering 30% reduction in falls from height compared to last year with an overall drop of 19% in all incidents by NASC operatives.
The annual safety report (available in printed or digital format) is available directly from the NASC. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your copy.
