The Scaffolding Association attended both the Northern Housing Consortium: Health & Safety in Housing Conference 2019 and the London Working at Height Seminar in June and July.
At the Health & Safety in Housing Conference – organised by the Northern Housing Consortium, which represents the views of housing organisations in the North of England – Scaffolding Association chief executive Rob Candy gave a talk on Temporary Works Procurement and Health and Safety Responsibilities. The well-supported session for delegates covered CDM 2015, BS 5975 alignment along with best practice and early design decisions.
The audience at the London Working at Height Seminar was professionals with an interest in working at height within the City of London and beyond, including local government authorities, procurement professionals, health and safety specialists, and building and facility managers. Exhibiting at this event provided an excellent opportunity for the Association to promote its campaigning to raise standards of safety, technical quality and workforce skills in this area.
Speakers at the seminar included Alison Thewliss MP, who discussed the APPG Working at Height Report issued earlier this year.
