NASC MD, Robin James said: “Having previously exhibited successfully at Health & Safety North and Scotland events, we are looking forward to showcasing the work NASC does to set standards in scaffolding at this three-day event run by Western Business Exhibitions. The event promises to offer us the opportunity of reaching out to thousands of people in the construction, health and safety and other sectors – helping to promote what NASC does to improve safety and working standards within the scaffolding and work at height industries.”

CISRS Training Manager, Dave Mosley added: “With over 55,000 UK CISRS card holders and over 4,500 overseas cards, CISRS is growing strongly. This event gives us a valuable opportunity to spread the word about the industry card scheme, and promote the many positive things which are happening in the training sector – including the launch of CISRS CPD courses from 1st July 2017.”

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. The event organisers say: “The Health & Safety Event provides the perfect networking and educational opportunity to anyone responsible for running a safe and efficient workplace, anywhere in the UK. Each event brings together the very best of the UK health & safety industry at a 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.”
