NASC announce the launch of a new Scaffolding Product Innovation Award

The NASC is launching a new biennial Scaffolding Product Innovation Award – celebrating the very best developments in new scaffolding materials and products from leading industry suppliers.

The process for award submissions will be revealed in June, on the NASC website, across social media platforms and via e-shots. The inaugural award will be presented at the confederation’s AGM in Amsterdam on November 25th (and thereafter every two years) – following an independent judging process, featuring a panel of leading access and scaffolding experts in the UK.

Innovative entries will be accepted for any widely used scaffolding material, or access and scaffolding product from NASC member companies.

Chair of the NASC Hire, Sale & Manufacturing Committee, TRAD Group MD, Des Moore, said: “The scaffolding industry is constantly evolving, and product-based hire, sale and manufacturing member companies are at the forefront of driving these changes. As such, we felt it was time to recognise this and champion those companies and individuals who are creating products that make the industry a safer place to work in.”

NASC MD Robin James added: “This is a new and worthy award to complement the existing biennial NASC Health & Safety award, and to encourage best practice in the access and scaffolding industry. We look forward to getting this new award off the ground at the AGM this year and receiving innovative entries from across the membership for independent judgement and recognition.”
