Scaffolding Association Queensland

Cogent Scaffolding are proud members of the Scaffolding Association Queensland.


The Scaffolding Association Queensland (SAQ) 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 Queensland was formed, Queensland’s scaffolding industry had no organisation to represent their industry.


Since forming in 1994, the SAQ has represented its membership in dealings with State and Federal agencies from associated industries. The 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.


The mission of the Scaffolding Association Queensland is to represent, enhance and promote the scaffold industry in Queensland. This mission incorporates educating and developing the capabilities of members and associate members.


All members of the Scaffolding Association of Queensland SAQ share a commitment to professionalism in Qld’s scaffolding industry. Members of the SAQ are helping advance more effective safety standards in the scaffolding industry by creating a cohesive industry approach to the development of scaffold related standards. The cohesive industry approach of the SAQ also helps ensure that changes to government legislations impacting the scaffolding industry in Qld are reasonable and consider the opinions of scaffolding companies.


Cogent Scaffolding is a proud and long time supporter of the Scaffolding Association Queensland and we also have a member of our company on the committee of the SAQ.
