Setting Up Scaffolding

Setting Up Scaffolding

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.

In Shanghai, bamboo scaffolding is used in most building construction projects.

Although there are many scaffolding safety regulations, a large number of serious injuries and even fatalities will occur on scaffolding each year.

Did you know that tubular scaffolding is usually three times the cost of bamboo scaffolding?

Take time to research the scaffold company you propose to use to ensure that it will meet all of your needs.

Guard rails should be provided when working on scaffolding over the height of 10 feet. Otherwise, each worker must be protected by a fall protection system.

Only apply for jobs in scaffolding with companies that adhere to the rules of the workplace and current legislation.

Scaffolding bars can be used horizontally, vertically and diagonally using a variety of clamps including swivel clams, right angle clams and straight connectors.

There are a number of scaffolding types available. Therefore it's always advisable to familiarize yourself with the hazards associated with the scaffold type you're using.

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