ScaffSAFE Ltd was founded and established in 2019 by Steve Gregory MIIRSM. Steve has over 30 years of experience in the construction and the scaffolding sector. He undertakes an Ambassador role for the IIRSM (International Institute Risk Safety Management) where he is a full member.
During his career, he began as a scaffold laborer and worked himself all the way up into higher management positions. He decided his leadership skills were not reaching his expectations. Steve set out on delivering his lifelong passion and beliefs of safeguarding lives through industry education. He undertook his Nebosh Health and Safety Qualification, Lead Auditor Qualifications and also his Teaching, Assessing & Quality Assurance Qualifications (internal verification).
Throughout his career, Steve has constantly driven himself towards the next generation coming into the scaffolding industry he has delivered CISRS & CITB accredited training at all levels at various CISRS training centres. During this time the role took him all over the globe in an international capacity. A recent project is that Steve is active on the team currently undertaking the review of the Access and Rigging National Occupational Standards for the vocational qualification that a scaffolder achieves when undertaking their CISRS training. Steve says "we have an ageing workforce and the future is looking worrying as youth is not being developed at the rate it should in construction. It is vital that we recognise this, and encourage as many new learners as possible to actively gain a trade skill behind them as they progress through life. The UK is world-renowned for developing excellent skillsets in development and this must continue and improve".
Steve has also recently been undertaking roles as a Lead Auditor to accomplish them to a standard to achieve Audited Membership of Industry Trade Membership. He now works closely with clients to deliver their goals for their own businesses.
"Whilst undertaking these roles it has become apparent that many companies out there are not issuing the service their clients deserve. Whilst undertaking the Audits many did not reach a minimum standard of compliance. Yet these companies pay thousands each year to these companies. I decided to establish ScaffSAFE ltd for one sole reason, to bridge that industry quality gap. When working with clients it's a two-way trust process. Everyone is judged on performance, and this is what drives me daily. The best accolade is observing the company's progress on its journey. ScaffSAFE Ltd ethics is all about family values and we class each client as part of the family. I only give promises that we can guarantee. The targets set will be delivered and on schedule. If you're wanting to progress your construction business then I strongly suggest that we have that chat. It costs nothing to find out".
