The (National Access and Scaffolding Confederation) NASC is implementing the use of black and yellow hazard tape on scaffolding in areas open to pedestrian traffic – following safety advice from the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).
The move comes after the NASC received data from the RNIB clearly stating it is much easier for visually impaired people to see black & yellow tape, rather than the commonly used red & white tape.
All contractors are advised to use the black and yellow tape in relevant situations and to advise their clients accordingly.
