TG20:13 Courses Announced for Scaffolders & Management/Supervision

5th March 2014

Simian is delighted to announce two new courses to our expanding learning portfolio.

The much anticipated and recently published TG20:13 has wide-reaching implications for the scaffolding industry as a whole. From an operational scaffolding perspective, the new guidance brings with it many changes to long-established principles and vastly increases the scope of scaffolds that were deemed as ‘standard’ by TG20:08.

In recognition of this, we are now able to offer the following courses at a location of your choice. Both courses are one day in length.
