    It's the National Agreement for the Engineering Construction Industry which sets terms and conditions of employment for hourly-paid engineering construction workers on major engineering construction projects and repair and maintenance sites throughout the UK.

    It's not a qualification or accreditation mate it's an agreement for rates of pay and conditions on certain industrial and engineering jobs - commonly a power station outage and the like.

    Jobs with the blue book agreement are referred to as a 'blue book job'

    I like blue book jobs... They usually throw money at you because there usually on power stations or oil refineries and for every day that the plant is shut down the client is loosing millions so they think nothing of paying a load of lazy Scaff's £25 an hour on Sunday to turn up.
    Last one I was on we were guaranteed weekends so for 18 months we were on £1200 a week in the bank, which is probably more than the average Scaff can get on the streets.

    Anyone know of any on the horizon or any that need men?
