    Cool The NASC 2012 Safety Report is available

    NASC 2012 Safety Report


    The NASC 2012 Safety Report is available here.


    http://www.nasc.org.uk/NASC/media/NA...eport_2012.pdf

    The NASC has published its latest annual safety report. The 2012 report combines elements of the NASC brochure, previously published as a separate document, together with a detailed report and analysis of accident data submitted by the NASC full contracting membership in the year to 31 December 2011.

    The report concludes with a list of contracting companies in NASC membership at the 2011 year end..

    Well.

    Unfortunately most of this report is annoyingly a barrage of "only use NASC members" propaganda. I thought this was a safety report, not advertising! Very, very annoying.

    Finally managed to get to the important part which is the accidents and what is the most common.

    Again, slips trips and falls. Absolutely no surprise that falls from height accounts for so few accidents! I couldn't agree more with NASCs assessment of this, it's about time this was taken more seriously. Site managers and safety officers should start focussing on making the work area more safe to work rather than harassing the scaffolders who are working at height, it appears a scaffolder is safer on the scaffold than on the ground!

    It's also worth noting that according to NASC that causes of injuries to site operatives was most commonly caused by.... other site operatives! So tell those other trades to get the hell out of the way.

    "safer up here than on your site mr safety officer,look at the literature"

    It's not the fall,it's the sudden stop at the end!

    I am now looking forward to the The SCCR 2012 Safety Report - see how it varies.

    I did try looking on their website, but it's members only...
