AGM

Earlier in the day, the FASET AGM featured updates on the work of the trade body during 2021 and a wide range of external speakers from IPAF; Lawyer Adam Pavey – speaking on employment law; FASET’s marketing partner Simon Taylor – talking about maximising the impact of marketing with the construction and FM sectors; and the CITB’s Trevor Oakley – who answered questions on grant funding, as well as assisting with claims for funding.

FASET exists to keep people who work at height safe – and this year’s event featured a virtual reality working at height simulator, enabling everyone in attendance to try out their skills safely. There was a competitive element – a prize for the person who completed the at-height course safely, in the quickest time!

FASET MD Tony Seddon said: “Once again, Tewkesbury Park proved to be a popular venue for our AGM and Annual Awards event, which I am confident was our best yet. This event is a very important way of highlighting the hard work of all the FASET committees and staff over the year – and to show what’s been achieved in the past 12 months, which have continued to be challenging due to COVID.

“The working at height industry was extremely well represented at this year’s event by professionals from a wide range of organisations. We are extremely grateful to our sponsors, whose invaluable contributions helped to make it memorable for everyone.

“With such a plethora of talent and experience under one roof, the networking opportunities were fantastic and I am sure that some valuable and long-lasting partnerships were made at the event.

“The work of FASET members – sub-contracting and training – is often extremely challenging, complex and is far from simple. And we shouldn’t forget – what they do every day saves lives. And that fact cannot be understated.

“The AGM and FASET Annual Awards are a great celebration of the hard work of member companies and individuals and we would like to congratulate those nominated for an award and of course the highly commended and winners. All involved in FASET should be very proud of what they achieve – regardless of whether they entered or won an award, because they ensure that construction site workers in the UK go home safely to their families, every day.”

The FASET Awards evening rounded off nicely with entertainment from popular and award-winning comedian Scott Bennett.
