Steel scaffolding is a must for all major construction projects because of its safety and contribution to higher efficiency.

Do not buy scaffolding with mixed parts from different manufacturers.

Scaffolding companies are beginning to use light prefabricated equipment to make a job less labour intensive.

Scaffolding systems that are correctly designed will have work levels which are decked with regulation sized planks and have appropriate access for workers.

There are two primary categories of scaffolding, fixed and mobile.

When you buy scaffolding that is second hand, always carefully inspect all parts of the scaffolding to ensure that it is in good condition.

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.

Repeated reports of scaffolding accidents state that. 'Scaffolding that was improperly constructed, and negligently maintained.'

Overall, scaffolding costs, like any other construction cost, will vary from project to project and whether you hire out or do it yourself.

Liability insurance is an essential part of a scaffold company's insurance coverage. This type of insurance protects your company in the event that a third party on or near your jobsite is injured or killed because of your scaffolding.
