Safeway Scaffold Company

The purpose of using scaffolding tubes is to create a safe working platform.

Safety is paramount in construction scaffolding as builders are dependent on their scaffolding for their own safety.

Scaffolding costs can be greatly reduced if you 'do it yourself' - however, be warned that if anyone other than yourself uses the scaffolding you will have to ensure that all the current scaffolding regulations, especially with regard to safety, are adhered to - otherwise your scaffolding costs could be more than just financial.

Always be sure that the name of the scaffolding company is not associated with anything negative.

Always ensure that scaffolding erection meet all requirements set out by OSHA.

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.

You can cover the ends of scaffolding tubes high density polyethylene covers which just snap on. This creates a safer working environment.

When using a scaffolding company make sure that an appropriate license has been obtained before any work has been started.

If you are planning to erect scaffolding and feel that it might cause an obstruction it may be a good idea to contact a local scaffolding company for advice.

When you buy scaffolding that is used, check it out for rust, damaged or distorted parts before you buy.
