Scaffold Handrail

Scaffold Handrail

A license needs to be obtained for any scaffolding that is put up on the highway including the pavement. This is the responsibility of the scaffolding hire company.

If you run a scaffolding business it's in your best interest to quote accurately as well as competitively. This is because many of your clients will obtain quotes from other scaffolding firms.

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

Do not take up boards, move handrails or remove ties from independent scaffolding to gain access for work.

How to erect scaffolding is the main question asked by those proposing to undertake DIY scaffolding.

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 that scaffolding towers can create particular hazards during erection and dismantling.

When you buy scaffolding, each system should have detailed plans for the safe erection and use of the scaffolding.

Do not move DIY scaffolding systems when people are on the working platform as this is extremely dangerous to all concerned.

When a scaffolding accident is reported the responsibility will often lie with the scaffolding companies, architects or engineers.
