Following on from SCA Groupâ€™s successful acquisition of Access Scaffold IW, this newly formed division of our core business can now boast to be the only native scaffolding contractor on the Isle of Wight that is a full member of the NASC â€“ The National Access And Scaffolding Confederation.
The NASC is recognised as the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, and is responsible for producing guidance in the industry for contractors, clients and customers. As membership is only achieved through a strict audit, the clients of Access Scaffold IW can be assured that all our scaffolding practices and activities are regulated to ensure that the highest standards are maintained. More information about the NASC can be found here www.nasc.org.uk
Membership to the NASC has multiple benefits for clients and contractors alike, such as access and guidance to the very latest legislation, not to mention that there has been an evident shift for main contractors of late to specify â€˜NASC onlyâ€™ companies in their tenders. Health and Safety is high on the NASCâ€™s agenda and itâ€™s members undergo regular monitoring to ensure that accident statistics remain in line with NASC expectations. This is partly achieved through the annual audit, but also through regular updates and by providing contractors with a wealth of professional advice.
If you have any scaffolding requirements or just need further information, please contact Ashley Palmer on 07917 132390 or Barry Westbrook on 07736 691184.
