As the availability of jobs in scaffolding can vary, always put some cash aside to pay your tax and see you through tough times.

You may wish to buy new scaffolding boards when you buy scaffolding that has been used.

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

It is important to start dismantling the scaffolding as soon as the job's finished.

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