Setting Up Scaffolding

Setting Up Scaffolding

Your system scaffolding supplier has a legal responsibility to provide you with a tie configuration and erection guide.

Scaffolding bars are now usually constructed of galvanised steel but in the past have been made of wooded staves and bamboo.

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

Low prices from a scaffold company might mean that you will not get the service or safety that you require. This isn't always the case, but make sure that you research your scaffold company carefully.

Anyone planning to use portable scaffolding should be trained by a properly qualified person.

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

When estimating your budget on scaffolding, make sure not to put price before safety.

Scaffolding tubes can be used horizontally, vertically and diagonally using a variety of clamps including swivel clams.

Scaffolding systems that are correctly designed will have work levels which are decked with regulation sized planks and have appropriate access for workers.

To prevent workers from slipping it's essential for a scaffolding plank to have a non slip surface.
