Trade body continues to grow with a series of UK roadshows.
Over the last two years the alternative scaffolding trade body, The Scaffolding Association has quietly been growing its membership of scaffolding contractors nationwide with increasing momentum after previous successful roadshows.
The Scaffolding Association is a not-for-profit organisation which has been founded to improve the understanding, safety and standards of scaffolding across the construction industry.
The trade body offers three levels of memberships to all companies within the scaffolding industry to ensure all companies have access to an organisation which will provide them with guidance and support, irrespective of levels of competence or development.
- Associate Membership: All companies within the scaffolding industry can have access to this level of membership.
- Assessed Membership: Designed to recognise companies who hold a current SSIP Scheme Certificate.
- Audited Membership: The Scaffolding Association’s third level of membership which was rolled during February! has been developed in line with PAS91 specifically for scaffolding contractors. Offering an independent third party audit, against a Scaffolding Specific Procurement Standard, undertaken by a UKAS accredited certification body.
Robert Candy, Chief Executive of The Scaffolding Association said:
“The Scaffolding Association has progressed rapidly over the last 12 months and we’ve been working hard on a range of projects in the industry and these roadshows are a brilliant opportunity to get out there and share with everyone the things we’ve been working on. In particular it’s been great to explain to people about our Audited Level of membership which is something our members and the industry had been pushing for. All of the feedback we’ve had so far has been really positive, and it is our belief that this will become the benchmark standard for the procurement of scaffolding.”
In this series of roadshows The Scaffolding Association has already held meetings in Birmingham and London, the next meeting is in Leeds at Woodkirk Valley Country Club on 15th March 2016 with plans for further meetings in Cardiff, Devon, Newcastle and Peterborough in May.
