Underpinning guide aims to be 'industry bible'

THE ASSOCIATION of Specialist Underpinning Contractors (ASUC) is producing an 'industry bible' on health and safety guidelines for the underpinning and subsidence market.

The association is working closely with the Health & Safety Executive in the preparation of the document, which it hopes will receive its commendation and become the industry benchmark.

As part of ASUC's drive to make the industry safer, it is justifiably proud of its part in the development of the guidance notes for the protecting of workers from rotating parts and ejected fallen material. These were published in association with the British Drilling Association at the end of last year.
