Build Your Own Scaffolding

Build Your Own Scaffolding

In some cases scaffolding systems may require expensive anchor assemblies which are to be installed onto the building structure.

Safety is paramount in construction scaffolding as builders are dependent on their scaffolding for their own safety.

It is important that when you buy scaffolding, it is sensible to buy extra pieces as replacement parts.

Make sure your construction team is doing its part to incorporate scaffolding safety into its daily work regimen.

By storing your scaffolding components close to your work area will help reduce distances over which loads have to be manually moved.

Jobs such as removing or installing guttering, installing replacement windows, painting or demolition work should usually be carried out from independent scaffolding or mobile access equipment.

Be aware that uncovered ends of a scaffolding tube can pose many potential dangers.

Falls from a height, especially from independent scaffolding, continue to be the biggest killer on construction sites.

It's important to not allow excessive debris and equipment to accumulate on or around scaffolds.

Be careful not to mix any scaffolding components that are not designed to be compatible.
