As the publication of the eagerly awaited TG20:13 grows ever closer, The NASC has announced they will be holding five, free regional seminars across the UK during the month of March.

The TG20:13 (Technical Guidance for tube and fitting scaffolding) regional seminars are open to principal contractors, client bodies, local authorities, health and safety consultants and scaffolding contractors. Pre-registration is required for attendance at the seminars (on a first-come first-served basis) via the NASC website due to the anticipated level of demand.

Each of the regional seminars will take place from 2.00-4.00pm and will feature two separate TG20:13 presentations. The first presentation will take the form of an introduction to TG20:13 by Terry Roberts (CADS, technical authors of TG20:13) and will highlight the main features of the revised guidance.

The second presentation will consider the implementation of TG20:13 by the scaffolding sector and the wider construction industry and will be delivered by Simon Hughes (Simian Risk). Each of the presentations will be followed by a Question and Answer session.

The two TG20:13 presentations will be followed by a shorter presentation by David Mosley (NASC Director of Training and CISRS Scheme Manager) who will update on scaffolding industry training requirements.

The event will conclude with a further brief presentation by Robin James (NASC Managing Director) who will discuss the benefits of using NASC member companies for scaffolding requirements.

Robin James (NASC Managing Director) said:

“The TG20:13 regional seminars are a great opportunity to get to grips with the greatly enhanced and user-friendly revised Technical Guidance, and to learn more about CISRS training as well as the benefits of using NASC members. We are confident that representatives from the wider industry will find the seminar content extremely useful and will go away with a greater understanding of TG20:13.
