Scaffold Safety Checklist

Scaffold Safety Checklist

By doing some comparative shopping, you would be able to find the best deal on pricing and components for your scaffolding needs.

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.

Buying standard scaffolding will be easier to stack and store but requires manual assembly with specialist knowledge.

Hanging bracket scaffolds may have horizontal structures that are supported by the floors of the building or other edifice under construction or repair.

Do not use second hand scaffolding with parts from different manufacturers.

If you are working on a building that is adjacent to a public highway, then the safety of all highway users is of great importance.

Price is always a consideration when choosing a scaffold company - make sure that the scaffold company that you choose will not compromise on service or safety.

Remember to be careful whenever you're erecting scaffolding on soft, frozen or suspect ground.

If you buy scaffolding, you will need to consider the safety issues when you come to erect the scaffold.

Scaffolding requires regular maintenance and inspection, also space to store - you might want to try and reduce your scaffolding costs by hiring scaffolding instead of owning it.
