Scaffold Builder Job Description

Scaffold Builder Job Description

Even the Romans used scaffolding in their construction projects!

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.

Make sure all planks and walk boards are at least 36 inches below the highest point of any portable scaffolding.

Do not take up boards, move handrails or remove ties from independent scaffolding to gain access for work.

Scaffolding is used in the construction or repair of buildings and its main function is to support workers and their materials. However, a scaffolding structure is only ever intended to be a temporary measure.

The main purpose of scaffolding structure is to provide a safe working place for workers who are involved in working in high rise structures.

You need to always be dealing with scaffolding companies which provide good, safe products which will allow you to trust those products for years to come.

If your business is scaffold rental equipment, you must ensure that you have consulted with an expert scaffolding insurance broker or agent to arrive at the best possible coverage decisions for your company.

If you are working on a building that is adjacent to a public highway, then the safety of all highway users is of great importance.

Any stresses that are caused by the use of scaffolding planks must be properly distributed from the scaffolding plank to the framework.
