Held at the NEC in Birmingham from 9th to 11th October, UK Construction Week showcased all areas of the industry, from design to build, product innovation and, of course, the health and safety aspect of construction, drawing an astounding 35,000 attendees.

During the event, Simian’s Managing Director, Simon Hughes, took to the stage on behalf of the NASC to deliver a CPD course on changes to the scaffolding industry. With a presentation covering a number of topics, Simon discussed:

  • New and revised health and safety guidance
  • Technical and contractual guidance
  • Scaffolding specification template for procuring scaffolding contractors
  • CISRS continued professional development for scaffolding operatives

We would like to say a big thank to all who attended Simon’s talk and to UK Construction Week for organising such a successful event.
