NASC & CISRS To Exhibit at New-Look ‘Scotland Works’ Health & Safety Event, SEC Glasgow, May 3-4

NASC and CISRS will be exhibiting at the new-look, biennial ‘Scotland Works’ event – May 3-4 being held at Scotland’s premier B2B event venue, the SEC – on stand HS48, opposite the main conference theatre in the ‘Health & Safety Scotland’ section.

NASC will be using this key industry event north of the border – which attracts 3,500+ construction and safety professionals from across Scotland, off-shore and the rest of the UK – to launch the NASC 2017 Safety Report, which summarises accident data with analysis from the confederation’s 230+ member companies, and is highly regarded within the health and safety sector and the scaffolding industry.

Furthermore, NASC staff will be actively promoting the latest NASC technical and safety guidance (including the recently 50% discounted TG20:13 Good Practice Guide for Tube & Fitting Scaffolding), changes to CISRS training with the introduction of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses from July 1st and will also be aiming to attract Scottish and Northern Irish scaffolding companies to consider the many benefits of joining the rapidly-expanding NASC. Staff will also be distributing news releases, the NASC 2017 Yearbook, the CISRS CAP 609 booklet and the fresh-off-the-press NASC 2017 Safety Report.

The NASC & CISRS stand will feature an unmissable, 5.6m tall modular system scaffolding structure provided by Glasgow-based NASC hire, sales and manufacturing members, Turner Access Ltd.

The structure will be erected from the Turner OCTO Steel Scaffold System, designed and made in Scotland. Commercial Manager, Ian Henderson said: “This system is compliant to EN12810 and EN12811 and is known worldwide for the quality of its manufacture, safety and ease of erection and dismantle, as well as versatility in managing working at height solutions.”

In addition to being providers of scaffolding to the NASC/CISRS stand, Turner Access Ltd will also be at the Scotland Works event exhibiting their lightweight Alloy products, on stand FM14.

NASC MD, Robin James said: “The confederation is hoping to kick on from a very successful exhibition at The Birmingham NEC in March also a great event here in Glasgow in 2015. This exhibition reaches a different demographic with the same safe scaffolding messages we offer from the SHE Expo at London ExCeL in the Summer and the (new for NASC & CISRS) Build Show, part of UK Construction Week in October.

“There is a huge amount of interest in what the organisation is doing, especially in regard to TG20:13, which has recently been discounted in price. And we expect similarly high levels of interest in the NASC 2017 Safety Report as well as other new and revised NASC publications.

“We are looking forward to going ‘north of the border’ in order to showcase the organisation to the thousands of visitors anticipated at this Glasgow-based event, and attracting more Scottish and Northern Irish scaffolding contractors into NASC membership. Our thanks go to members Turner Access Ltd for use of the scaffold structure.”

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 – who will be hosting a wide-ranging safety seminar over the two day event in the 400-seat auditorium, opposite the NASC stand

The ‘Health & Safety Scotland’ event was last held at The SEC in 2015 and is now co-located with Fire Safety Scotland, Facilities, Maintenance and Cleaning Scotland as part of the new ‘Scotland Works’ series – aimed at delivering to a large audience of senior management and procurement specialists.

Event organisers, Western Business Publishing, said: “This well-established and revised Scotland Works event prides itself in bringing together the UK’s top industry experts, whilst showcasing new and innovative products to the market.“

In order to attend this free event, loaded with trade stands and packed with free seminars, interested parties should pre-register for a pass here.
