Any company found to be in violation of scaffolding regulations is likely to be issued with a fine by OSHA.

It is essential that all base plates and screw jacks (that come with base plates) must be secured firmly to the base of the scaffolding.

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

When it comes to interior decorating, indoor scaffolding is an excellent option for reaching those hard to get places.

If the scaffold is 4 times as high as its base is wide, outriggers should be installed to increase the scaffold's width.

Common causes of scaffolding accidents include; insecure bracing, faulty equipment, forgotten safety components, faulty planking and shoddy construction materials.

In some cases scaffolding systems may require expensive anchor assemblies which are to be installed onto the building structure.

All employees should wear protective headgear, like hard hats, at all times when working on or around portable scaffolding.

Before contractors allow their workers to use someone else's independent scaffolding, they must make sure it is safe.

A few Internet sites that both sell and rent scaffolding have estimator tools. These tools enable you to design the scaffolding for your particular needs and project and then tell you what would be needed for your design.
