Fixed scaffolds are constructed alongside a building and can be either independent or putlog.
All independent scaffolding requires bracing to help prevent them from collapsing.
Make sure that all scaffolding bars, tools, and materials are at least 10 feet away from energized power lines and that the power lines are also protected.
Never use unstable objects such as bricks or boxes to support DIY scaffolding.
Scaffolders should always adopt a safe system of work during the erection, altering and dismantling of independent scaffolding.
