Actavo and SCP Forgeco unveil Quality First campaign

Actavo and SCP Forgeco have established Quality First, a collaborative campaign intended to increase awareness and understanding about how variations in the performance and quality of scaffolding equipment, including fittings, ladders, adjustable steel props and Strongboys, can increase risk.

The new Quality First campaign brings together Actavo Hire & Sales, a national distributor, and SCP Forgeco, a leading product manufacturer. The initiative aims to encourage scaffolding contractors to check that all equipment and fittings being used are fit for purpose and have valid test certification that proves they meet recognised safety and technical standards.

The initial campaign features a five-point guide that details how contractors can be sure that the fittings they are using are fit for purpose and safe to use, to be followed by guidance for the larger range of accessories.

Paul Norris, managing director at Actavo Hire & Sales, said: “Commercial pressures are a temptation to purchase a cheaper look-a-like product that, when used, just does not perform as you would expect."

“It is absolutely vital that accessories and fittings are compliant with appropriate standards and backed by valid test certificates.”

Dale, managing director at SCP Forgeco, said: “Users of access and scaffolding products should demand the highest quality. They should have the right to trust that fittings and other equipment have been manufactured and tested to a safe standard.”
