Build Your Own Scaffolding

Build Your Own Scaffolding

When you buy scaffolding for indoor working, the scaffolding will come with locking wheels which make moving it around easier.

OSHA states that scaffolds can be erected, moved, dismantled, or altered only under the supervision and direction of a "competent person." A "competent person" is someone who can identify hazards and is authorized to take prompt action to eliminate them.

Although there are many scaffolding safety regulations, a large number of serious injuries and even fatalities will occur on scaffolding each year.

Access ladders should extend about 1 m above the working platform of independent scaffolding in order to provide a handhold for people getting on and off.

It's advisable to flip any scaffolding planks closest to the building wall onto their sides. This will prevent any rain from splashing onto the mortar during the course of a rain storm.

Bamboo scaffolding is quick to erect and can be easily fitted within tight working spaces.

To prevent workers from slipping it's essential for a scaffolding plank to have a non slip surface.

How to erect scaffolding is the main question asked by those proposing to undertake DIY scaffolding.

Do not buy scaffolding with mixed parts from different manufacturers.

Bear in mind, as the size of a construction project increases, so does the cost of scaffolding.
