The DSA membership consists of Contractor Members and Supplier Members. Contractor Members are specialist companies such as Protech supplying a professional diamond drilling and sawing service. Other available services can include bursting, crushing and thermic lancing. The Supplier Members provide the specialist machines and tools used in drilling and sawing.
The DSA has built up a membership of over 100 companies, and is committed to the development of consistent standards of workmanship and training. Clients can then have confidence in the quality and specification of work offered by our contractor members.
The DSA also has active links with the drilling and sawing associations in other countries through the International Association of Concrete Drillers and Sawers (IACDS).
The DSA provides Training and Accreditation Services through its subsidiary company DSA Training Ltd.
The DSA has co-operated with the CSCS Scheme Management in the production of a CSCS Card in Drilling & Sawing. The issue of this card is based on the achievement of an NVQ in Drilling & Sawing. This NVQ is now available following development between the DSA and the CITB.>
