The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) have launched an update of their core scaffolding fall prevention guidance SG4:15 Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations click here.

It deals with the following factors for those operating within the scaffolding sector:

  • erecting floor height lifts
  • bridging with beams
  • loading bay gate installation
  • cantilever scaffolding
  • chimney stack scaffolding
  • personal fall protection equipment.

The NASC past President, Kevin Ward said:

“SG4 works! The NASC accident statistics speak for themselves and in light of these, this revision has been more of a fine-tuning exercise rather than trying to reinvent the wheel. We’re very happy to be launching the revised SG4 guidance. Since its inception in the 1990s, SG4 has stood the test of time and evolved to become the de facto standard for the protection of scaffolders working at height.”
