The DSA's mission is to promote the work of professional drilling and sawing contractors by highlighting the main advantages of cutting concrete with diamond tools, which include precision cutting within the shortest time scale, reduced noise, dust and debris and maintenance of structural integrity.
The DSA is committed to its Members in helping create a positive role within the Specialist Contractor sector of the construction industry.
Working hard over many years DSA was the first â€œSpecialist Contractor Associationâ€ to develop and implement our own apprenticeship scheme in association with CITB, with Competency cards being issued well before CSCS cards and NVQâ€™s. DSA has been pushing hard to change the mind-set of the Construction industry over many years to give Drilling and Sawing the recognition it deserves as a highly skilled trade.
DSA members benefit from approved operator training courses and the adoption of national safety standards and working codes of practices, as well as affiliation with other recognised construction industry international and national associations. The DSA also provides a forum for members to meet within an organised framework to discuss and share best practice and the future development of the industry as a whole.
