Setting Up Scaffolding

Setting Up Scaffolding

When it comes to interior decorating, indoor scaffolding is an excellent option for reaching those hard to get places.

Falling object and unsure ground are amongst the main cause of accidents when erecting and using DIY scaffolding.

Recently there has been an increase in the use of the strong lightweight laminated veneer scaffolding plank.

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

Be aware that scaffolding firms may be able to hire scaffolding poles out to you at very low cost.

Make sure that all workers are aware of the new 'fall zone' when moving portable scaffolding.

Scaffolding costs can be greatly reduced if you 'do it yourself' - however, be warned that if anyone other than yourself uses the scaffolding you will have to ensure that all the current scaffolding regulations, especially with regard to safety, are adhered to - otherwise your scaffolding costs could be more than just financial.

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.

The length of your scaffolding accident compensation claim will vary depending on the severity of your injuries. If you have suffered only minor injuries and the insurer accepts responsibility for the accident then you may well be able to settle your claim in a matter of weeks. However, if you need private medical treatment this can prolong the claim as a settlement cannot take place before a full assessment of your injuries can be obtained.

Make sure that you know how to erect scaffolding safely before you undertake any building or maintenance works that require the use of scaffolding.
