Setting Up Scaffolding

Setting Up Scaffolding

Scaffolding companies are beginning to use light prefabricated equipment to make a job less labour intensive.

Scaffolding bars may easily become destabilized, when they have not been assembled properly.

A license needs to be obtained for any scaffolding that is put up on the highway including the pavement. This is the responsibility of the scaffolding hire company.

Make sure that the scaffold companies you propose to use have a good history in terms of reputation service and safety.

It is not unusual for scaffolding companies and contractors to offer a complete scaffolding hire service for its customers.

It is essential that all base plates and screw jacks (that come with base plates) must be secured firmly to the base of the scaffolding.

It may be more convenient to buy scaffolding rather than rent it.

Independent scaffolding should be designed to prevent materials falling and be fitted with brickguards, netting or sheeting.

When you buy scaffolding, each system should have detailed plans for the safe erection and use of the scaffolding.

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