Scaffolding Provider Supporting Mental Health Awareness

By on Oct 15, 2019 in Blog, Scaffolding |

As a considerate employer and scaffold provider Network Scaffold, always ensure all of our staff are supported through any mental health issues.
In our latest blog, we are going to discuss a new initiative from the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation to support scaffolders.

World Mental Health Day supports Scaffolders

The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation recently announced, as part of World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2019, that they will be offering free guidance and advice on mental health. The aim of this campaign is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and raising awareness of the different support services available to workers in the scaffolding industry. This has been one of the key objectives of the NASC’s Head for Heights campaign, which started last year.

One of the key achievements of the campaign to date has been the production of SG38:19, dedicated health and wellbeing policy guidance.
This document is designed to help employers adopt a clear approach to provision and includes resources, advice and contact details of other organisations who can provide support.
Another resource from the NASC is the mental health toolbox talk, which has been circulated to over 300 members and is a short presentation that instructs employers how to start conversations with their employees about their mental health.
