This NASC guidance note has been written to reflect the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and has been produced following consultation and advice from the Asbestos Licensing Unit (ALU). (ACOP Ref: Managing and working with Asbestos – Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 – L143 and follows ALG Memo 01/10
Ancillary asbestos licenses for scaffolding.)
The NASC are committed to involving everyone in health and safety matters whether on construction sites or in the office. To effect a change we must consider our workforce and consult with all those involved in a project, listening to and where necessary acting upon the views of the workforce.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requires that employers give all employees sufficient information, training & supervision as is necessary for their Health & Safety. A broad guidance reminding us to ensure good preparation and emphasising to employees the areas of responsibility we all have in working safely.
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.
