The Scaffolding Association of Queensland was formed in 1994 to increase the level of professionalism in an industry too often ignored or misrepresented in the building process. Before the Scaffolding Association of Qld was formed, Queensland’s scaffolding industry had no organisation to represent their industry.
Since forming in 1994, SAQ has represented its membership in dealings with State and Federal agencies from associated industries. SAQ has also developed a successful track record lobbying Government and representing SAQ members in meetings with Government organisations. The hard work and commitment of members of the SAQ has also helped improve training and safety standards for scaffolding workers in Qld.
Over the past 15 years, the SAQ has helped members enhance and expand their businesses by providing support and advice with business management skills as well as updates on technological advances in the scaffolding industry and updates to scaffolding legislation. There are currently 37 members representing a range of large and small industry associated companies.
