The Association of Northern Scaffold Contractors was formed in 2003 by a group of dedicated owners of scaffold companies based in the North West of England.
The common goal was to improve the standard of scaffolding services provided across the North West of England. Now due to the Association's continual growth and recruitment of Members Nationwide the Association's comittment is now to improve the standard of scaffolding safety across the UK.
Since 2003 the Association has now grown into a well established scaffold trade association that has constantly seen growth year on year of new members joining the Association.
The Association is also now recognised by the Health and Safety Executive and the CITB as a Scaffold Trade Association that is setting the highest standards within the Construction Industry.
All members are self regulated and as a result of this self regulation there has been a major improvement in scaffolding standards across the whole of the United Kingdom where Member companies operate.
The Association also offers all members a wide variety of Health and Safety Training that is provided free as part of their membership fees. All training is provided by Clarke Health and Safety Consultants Limited the leading Scaffolding Consultancy Company in the UK.

- One of the UK's leading QC's Gerard Forlin, Gray's Inn, London
- Senior Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive
- Leading Health and Safety Lawyers such as Michael Appleby London, Steffan Groch, Manchester
The Association have formed an excellent relationship with Gerard Forlin Q.C. and a number of leading Health and Safety Law firms across the United Kingdom who provide legal advice to member companies.
