NASC membership - Caspian Group

What does NASC stand for?

NASC stands for National Access & Scaffolding Confederation and is defined as the UK trade body for access and scaffolding. Established in 1945, NASC serves over 400 scaffolding firms, suppliers and manufacturers.

From the largest scaffolding contractors and product suppliers to the tiniest ancillary components and services within the industry, NASC provides the UK scaffolding seal of approval.

Over the decades, the federation has spearheaded improving and maintaining scaffolding safety standards, making health and safety, contractual, technical and product purchasing guidance available to contractors, employees and clients.

NASC is recognised as the HSE industry standard alongside Build UK, CITB, and more.

What is NASC certified?

If you’re a scaffolding contractor, supplier or manufacturer, receiving NASC certification via their membership provides businesses with the highest industry expertise, resources and guidance.

Across operations, supply and manufacturing, the law requires employers to correctly assess the working from height risks involved with scaffolding with precautions for preventing falls and injuries.

For example, to ensure the correct erection, dismantlement and alteration of scaffolding safely, those responsible must follow the NASC Safety Guidance SG4 ‘Preventing falls in scaffolding operations.’

However, you can help ensure health and safety across all aspects of scaffolding with NASC certification.

NASC certification is set across the following memberships:

Each of these NASC scaffolding memberships shares the same main benefits:

Certificate and exposure

Receive an official NASC members certificate, with the inclusion of your company details on the NASC website and inside the annual yearbook.
