Construction- Sisk to enforce NASC membership for scaffolders

The NASC requires member organisations to abide by a strict code of conduct to improve on-site practice.  This has been a major contributing factor in reducing the number of reported accidents on scaffolding over the last two decades. Sisk believe that the move will reinforce its best practice approach to health and safety on construction sites, and further improve its incidents record.The announcement comes only weeks after Sisk won a gold award at the RoSPA 2009 Occupational Health and Safety Awards. Sisk company safety, quality and environmental manager James Meredith said: “Health and safety best practice is of the utmost importance to Sisk and we are committed to working with like-minded companies to deliver safe construction sites.“Our policy to exclusively use members of the NASC ensures we are only working with companies who have demonstrated a high level of competence in this high risk area of the industry. We would encourage all scaffolding contractors who have not achieved NASC membership to raise their game and meet the high standards required.”
