This NASC guidance document has been produced to give an overview of the planning required and the range of precautions that need to be considered to eliminate the risk of harm including that of controlling the risk of falling material and transport accidents.
This is the pocket version of the management guide. Members wishing to place an order for 100+ copies must email firstname.lastname@example.org as further discounts apply.
The ‘good practice’ document has been produced by the NASC, it is a completely updated version. It provides guidance for scaffolders on the planning and safe use of construction hoists, including transport platforms, used for moving scaffolding materials during the erection and dismantling of scaffolding.
Health surveillance is the application of systematic, regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work related ill health in employees who are exposed to certain health risks. An important area for consideration in managing well and leading to consideration of behavioural safety.
More than a quarter of the accidents reported each year by NASC members to enforcing authorities are associated with manual handling – the transporting or supporting of loads by hand, or by bodily force. A well-established document that proved to still be robust and valid. Hence date changes only in the 2015 update.
