Scaffold Safety Checklist
Even the Romans used scaffolding in their construction projects!
Throughout the whole of Asia bamboo scaffolding is a common sight on many construction sites.
The putlog scaffold has standards or uprights along its outer edges, but its inner side is supported by the structure or building itself. Putlogs have flattened ends that are placed between courses of brickwork in the building or edifice to add support.
Because scaffolding is such an integral component to most major construction jobs, scaffolding costs are becoming much more competitive.
When selecting scaffolding components, make sure that they have been constructed the requirements of the ASTM and ANSI.
Make sure your construction team is doing its part to incorporate scaffolding safety into its daily work regimen.
All employees should wear protective headgear, like hard hats, at all times when working on or around portable scaffolding.
When using a scaffolding company make sure that an appropriate license has been obtained before any work has been started.
There are many types of small portable scaffolding towers that can be hired or purchased relatively cheaply for use in a domestic or DIY situation.
In some cases scaffolding systems may require expensive anchor assemblies which are to be installed onto the building structure.
Whether your a builder, tradesman or DIY enthusiast scaffolding towers provide a safe platform to work at height.
