Scaffolding tube is produced to BS1139 and supplied either galvanised or varnished.

Scaffolding platforms should consist of undressed 2x10s that have been properly inspected and graded. The maximum allowable gap between planks is 1".

The independent scaffold has standards or uprights on both sides of its working platforms. This allows the independent scaffold to remain upright without support from the building under construction or repair.

Be aware of all the health and safety regulations associated with construction scaffolding.

It may seem to be easy to erect and use scaffolding, but there are thousands of accidents caused each year by those who do not know how to erect scaffolding safely.

Anyone using portable scaffolding could be putting themselves or others in danger if they have not been properly trained in its use.

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

Scaffolding tubes can be used horizontally, vertically and diagonally using a variety of clamps including swivel clams.

Jobs such as removing or installing guttering, installing replacement windows, painting or demolition work should usually be carried out from independent scaffolding or mobile access equipment.

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.
