Scaffold Builder Job Description

Scaffold Builder Job Description

The scaffolding framework is joined together by the use of scaffolding clamps.

Scaffolding accidents within the construction industry are likely to be caused by a lack of appropriate safety checks and negligent poor structure.

All independent scaffolding requires bracing to help prevent them from collapsing.

In the interest of staff, it is a company's legal duty to ensure that all safe scaffolding practices are carried out.

Guard rails should be provided when working on scaffolding over the height of 10 feet. Otherwise, each worker must be protected by a fall protection system.

As the availability of jobs in scaffolding can vary, always put some cash aside to pay your tax and see you through tough times.

Scaffolding requires regular maintenance and inspection, also space to store - you might want to try and reduce your scaffolding costs by hiring scaffolding instead of owning it.

All employees should wear protective headgear, like hard hats, at all times when working on or around portable scaffolding.

Scaffolding costs can be high and it is therefore important to read any customer reviews on each company you might consider to use to ensure you are dealing with a reliable company.

You can always check with the manufacture if you need to know the load capacities of scaffolding components.
