FASET is pleased to share the following story which was originally published on the website of one of our partners, the Access and Industry Forum (

2021 marks the 75th year of the Association of Technical Lightning & Access Specialists (ATLAS) representing the lightning protection and specialist access industry. To celebrate this poignant milestone, ATLAS would like to take you on a journey through 75 years of history in its new video.

In the newly launched video, ATLAS compares landmarks in its history to worldwide events, including when England won the World Cup and the first Concorde flight; starting back in 1946 when federation was founded, taking you right through to the current day, demonstrating how much the industry has progressed over 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 will run you through some of ATLAS’ greatest achievements and highlight the work of its members.

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’ strict membership criteria. ATLAS members face a rigorous application process and annual compliance checks to ensure the highest standards continue to be met throughout membership.

When you choose an ATLAS member, you are not dealing with an independent contractor alone. You can liaise with ATLAS in the unlikely event of needing to get any issues resolved, giving you additional peace of mind.

The 75th Anniversary video can be viewed on the ATLAS website –
