Scaffold Safety Checklist

Scaffold Safety Checklist

DIY scaffolding will require the use of guard rails, toe boards and safety mesh or net to prevent accidents.

Always take the time to familiarize yourself with the scaffolding regulations.

You should expect wooden scaffolding planks to have a shorter useable life than the scaffolding framework.

You must ensure that the scaffolding is secured to building when the height of the scaffolding exceeds four times the minimum base width.

Bamboo scaffolding is very popular in Hong Kong. Surprisingly, buildings up to fifty stories in height can be seen covered in a complex structure of bamboo scaffolding.

When using portable scaffolding, safety and general regulations must be adhered to in order to avoid injury to anyone using it.

Think about selling your used scaffolding training when you are ready to buy scaffolding.

When erecting DIY scaffolding, it should be erected on firm, level ground.

Your system scaffolding supplier has a legal responsibility to provide you with a tie configuration and erection guide.

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