When a scaffolding accident is reported the responsibility will often lie with the scaffolding companies, architects or engineers.
Bamboo scaffolding is quick to erect and can be easily fitted within tight working spaces.
It's impossible to erect a safe scaffold if the base rests on items like barrels, boxes, loose bricks, or concrete blocks.
Whether you erect scaffolding, or run a business that rents scaffolding, make sure you purchase the insurance programs and coverages that will suit the needs and risks of your business.
When you buy scaffolding for indoor working, the scaffolding will come with locking wheels which make moving it around easier.
It is essential that all base plates and screw jacks (that come with base plates) must be secured firmly to the base of the scaffolding.
The putlog scaffold has standards or uprights along its outer edges, but its inner side is supported by the structure or building itself. Putlogs have flattened ends that are placed between courses of brickwork in the building or edifice to add support.
Steel scaffolding is a must for all major construction projects because of its safety and contribution to higher efficiency.
When installing scaffolding, place vertical ties at the ends of the scaffolding. These ties should only be removed when the scaffolding is dismantled.
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.
Make sure your scaffolding is erected correctly to ensure you finish the job efficiently and safely.
