NASC launch two regional TG20 presentations

The NASC is organising two regional TG20 presentations (North/South) – aimed directly at assisting principal contractor temporary works consultants.

The purpose of these presentations will be to promote the wider adoption of TG20 by principal contractors generally. It will also seek to dispel any myths about TG20, whilst encouraging the wider use of NASC member companies for scaffolding requirements.

As an added incentive in addition to the free presentation by industry experts, temporary works consultants attending the presentations will each receive a complimentary TG20 full suite (one full suite per principal contractor represented at each location).

The TG20 presentations will take place on the following dates at the following locations:

10.30am Thursday 11 May 2017 (North)
Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa, 1150 Century Way, Thorpe Park, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS15 8ZB

10.30am Tuesday 23 May 2017 (South)

Robin James, NASC Managing Director said: “These events are an excellent opportunity for temporary works consultants working on all manner of construction projects to get the very latest scaffolding sector guidance and update their knowledge on tube and fitting scaffolding, TG20:13, SG4:15, CISRS training, NASC membership and much more. They have been a long time in the planning and we expect them to be a rewarding event for those attending.”
