Video takes us on a lightning journey through 75 years of history

0n75020n7503This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Association of Technical Lightning and Access Specialists (ATLAS) – the trade body that represents the lightning protection and specialist access industry. To celebrate this poignant milestone in its history, ATLAS takes us on a journey through 75 years of history in a new video, comparing landmarks in its history to worldwide events.

They include England winning the World Cup and the first Concorde flight – starting back in 1946 when the federation was founded and taking us right through to the current day, demonstrating how much the industry has progressed over the past 75 years.

ATLAS has accomplished a great deal over the years, publishing numerous guidance documents, launching successful campaigns, inputting into new British Standards and much more. The new video runs through some of ATLAS’s greatest achievements and highlights the work of its members.

Launching the video, an ATLAS spokesperson explained: “ATLAS members work to the highest standards in the industry, and we are proud to have represented such high quality in our specialist sector over so many years. If you are looking to contract lightning protection or specialist access work, choosing an ATLAS member means that you have an extra level of quality assurance, in that you are entrusting your work to those who have satisfied ATLAS’s strict membership criteria.”
