Scaffold Safety Checklist

Scaffold Safety Checklist

Skimping on price can be costly both economically and emotionally if there were to be an injury or death due to improper or faulty scaffolding.

When estimating your budget on scaffolding, make sure not to put price before safety.

To erect scaffolding on or over a public highway, you'll need to be issued with a license from your local Highway Authority.

Before you buy your own scaffolding it will pay you to do some research on the available types of scaffolding.

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

Hiring scaffolding can be a good way of reducing scaffolding costs if you only have a small scale project to undertake.

Make sure that you buy scaffolding that is appropriate for the task.

NEVER drop scaffolding components from heights when dismantling scaffolding as it could present a serious danger to persons below.

It is important that when you buy scaffolding, it is sensible to buy extra pieces as replacement parts.

The internet is an excellent resource which you can use to train your employees about scaffolding safety.
