A good scaffolding design should provide a way for workers to climb from platform to platform with ease.

Don't allow anyone to work on scaffolds during storms or in high winds, and don't allow anyone to move a scaffold while workers are on it unless it's been designed for that purpose.

When you first look at a scaffolding structure it can seem that it's supporting the building. It's only when you take a closer look you'll find it doesn't.

A system scaffolding construction can incorporate varying distances between legs for maximum flexibility.

Clamp connectors are inexpensive to manufacture and have a long life. They are suitable to use with just about any scaffolding design.

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.

Scaffolds are erected of easily assembled structures of steel or timber.

Any safety feature that can be applied to a scaffolding plank will add to its value.

The purpose of construction scaffolding is to provide a safe working platform to help builders in the construction of buildings.

Any company found to be in violation of scaffolding regulations is likely to be issued with a fine by OSHA.
