To prevent accidents every scaffolder should be familiar with scaffolding regulations.

Scaffolding requires regular maintenance and inspection, also space to store - you might want to try and reduce your scaffolding costs by hiring scaffolding instead of owning it.

Always make sure system scaffolding is designed and erected within the guidelines of the manufactures handbook.

Always consider carefully if it will be more economical to buy scaffolding rather than rent it.

On surfaces such a hard concrete it's possible to use scaffolding without base plates. However, it is recommended to always use base plates.

If scaffolding has been erected completely around a building, use 'stand off' bracing members to ensure that the scaffolding is restrained.

The standard scaffold board will have a maximum length of 3.9 meters and width of 225mm.

Skimping on price can be costly both economically and emotionally if there were to be an injury or death due to improper or faulty scaffolding.

Low prices from a scaffold company might mean that you will not get the service or safety that you require. This isn't always the case, but make sure that you research your scaffold company carefully.

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