National Access and Scaffolding Confederation 2015 guidance

On 19 November 2015, the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) published a series of revised Technical Guidance (TG) and Safety Guidance (SG) notes as part of their commitment to refresh guidance on a five year cycle.

The documents include:

The technical guidance notes are just 1-2 pages long, whilst the safety guidance notes range from six to 48-pages.

NASC members were sent the new guidance notes in the post during November 2015. They are also available to full members to download from the members area of the NASC website.

Managing Director of NASC, Robin James said: “With a wide range – from a short TG8 update on fire damage, to a much larger SG6 revision on manual handling in the scaffolding industry – these seven revised technical and safety guidance notes will be useful updates for the NASC membership and wider industry. The revisions also go to show the lengths that the NASC’s hard working committees go to in keeping guidance up to date with the latest health and safety and technical trends. Publishing these documents is at the heart of what the confederation does – making sure our membership continues to set the industry standard in scaffolding.”
