The advantages of adopting a value-driven approach to procurement are set to be explored at a breakfast briefing hosted by the National Access & Scaffolding Confederation (NASC).

The Future of Safe Scaffolding event will give delegates a greater understanding of how the scaffolding and access industry’s approach to health and safety is evolving and how this benefits them – helping them to streamline their procurement process and create a safer and more effective and accountable supply chain.

The briefing takes place at the UK Chamber of Shipping on Thursday 31 May.

Speakers on the day include Des Moore, TRAD Group CEO and NASC President, Bob Whincap, former Chair of the Access and Scaffolding Industry Training Organisation, and motivational safety speaker Dylan Skelhorn.

Des Moore said: “This event gives us the opportunity to talk directly with representatives from a wide range of businesses that procure scaffolding and access services.

“We’re keen to inform delegates of what the NASC is doing to further improve working practices across the scaffolding industry and also learn what challenges they face:

“We believe there is a lot of common ground between us and look forward to discussing how the standards and value offered by our members might help them best achieve their goals in an effective and efficient manner.”

The briefing will take place at the UK Chamber of Shipping, 30 Park Street, London, SE1 9EQ on Thursday 31 May, running from 8am to 10.30am.

The event is targeted at health and safety and procurement professionals from main contractors, local authorities and major housebuilders working across London and the South East.

A limited number of seats are still available. To register your interest in attending please contact Simon Robinson, NASC Marketing Manager, by email: simon.robinson@nasc.org.uk
