    Default NASC-Good,Bad or just plain Ugly?

    Must admit after talking to a few nasc members on here and them being normalish am i wrong in thinking they are worse than malaria,better than Diana or a mix of both say simon cowell
    It's not the fall,it's the sudden stop at the end!

    I think it depends Joe.

    Personally I have worked for companies who were members of the NASC and I can tell you that NASC rules go out of the window when it suits.

    I am all for various industries having trade associations etc but the NASC tries to appear to have a lot more power and a lot more sway than it actually does.

    We've had posts on here recently where the NASC have issued press releases about NASC member companies erecting more than 75% of the scaffold erected in the country. Obviously this does seem to be a little exaggeration of the truth. If it is true, where is the research? Where is the proof?

    I don't doubt that the NASC has done a fair bit for the scaffolding industry in its time but I also think it has laid claim to a lot more than it has actually done.

    NASC is run by people who are looking for "benefits" for themselves and their member companies and not the individual scaffolders.

    This was clearly shown through their stance with the Jordan safety clamp which they did everything in their power to restrict its introdution in the industry because it would cost their members money to provide safety for the scaffolders which was quite clearly unacceptable to them.

    How did the NASC restrict the introduction of the Jordan Clamp?
