Scaffolding Plans

Scaffolding Plans

There are two primary categories of scaffolding, fixed and mobile.

Don't allow anyone to work on scaffolds during storms or in high winds, and don't allow anyone to move a scaffold while workers are on it unless it's been designed for that purpose.

ALWAYS WARE A HARD HAT whenever you're erecting, dismantling or moving scaffolding.

The standard scaffold board will have a maximum length of 3.9 meters and width of 225mm.

A scaffolding company that fails to comply with legislation could cost them dearly. Especially in the case of a fatality where there is no evidence of scaffolding training.

It may seem to be easy to erect and use scaffolding, but there are thousands of accidents caused each year by those who do not know how to erect scaffolding safely.

Scaffolding is designed to allow easy access to places that are not accessible by the use ladders.

Always consider carefully if it will be more economical to buy scaffolding rather than rent it.

Soleplates are used at the base of the upright scaffolding poles to help distribute weight and minimize damage to the surface.

Due to lack of storage space smaller scaffolding companies will often leave their scaffolding up until it can be moved to the next job.
