2020 has been a turbulent year for the scaffolding industry, not to mention the business world as a whole, as we tackled the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lockdowns, social distancing restrictions, as well as site and training centre closures have meant that those in the scaffolding industry have had to carry out their work in an adapted manner, but in our opinion, the construction industry as a whole and particularly those involved in scaffolding, have responded superbly.
So, what could 2021 bring the scaffolding industry?
With closures at certain points during 2020 for construction sites throughout the world and only a limited workforce able to work at any one time, there have inevitably been delays to projects. 2021 therefore, is likely to be an extremely busy time for the construction industry, as existing projects continue and new ones begins. Ultimately this means a great deal of opportunity for scaffolding professionals on projects the length and breadth of the country. The naysayers might say that every silver lining has a cloud, and it remains to be seen what the implications of Brexit might be come 01 January 2021.
With training being a fundamental part of the scaffolding profession, it is crucial that the right courses are available year-round, and this means 2021 will see a huge focus on training for both beginners and more established scaffolders, both of whom missed out on training as a result of the pandemic and those looking to further their career and qualifications.
Here’s hoping all of our customers have a happy and healthy 2021.
