The NASC is the national trade body for access and scaffolding in the UK, established in 1945 with the aim of promoting high standards of safety within the industry.
Nearly 80 years later, raising and maintaining safety standards remains at the heart of the NASC’s objectives – driving every activity it undertakes.
This includes the production of a wide range of industry-recognised safety and technical guidance, created to support the needs of scaffolding contractors, their operatives and clients, and accepted as the industry standard by HSE, Build UK, CITB and principal contractors alike.
The same approach is extended to new membership applications, with a stringent set of criteria in place to ensure that the highest working practices are maintained.
NASC members are strictly audited every year to ensure compliance with NASC Criteria, Code of Conduct and the Code of Practice for scaffolding products.
These high standards are recognised and valued by construction industry leaders, who continue to stipulate ‘NASC only’ companies for access and scaffolding.
