Window Washer Scaffold

Unfortunately thousands of injuries and even deaths occur each year on construction sites due to scaffolding accidents.

The width of the boards will always determine the width of the scaffolding structure. It is recommended that the width scaffolding should be no less than 600mm. A four board scaffold would be 870mm.

Falls from a height, especially from independent scaffolding, continue to be the biggest killer on construction sites.

Scaffolding accidents are often caused from lack of attention to safety procedures and failure to supervise the work.

As portable scaffolding becomes more and more popular, there are more and more companies who are able to train those who use portable scaffolding.

Not only is it important to purchase or rent the correct type of scaffolding to insure that the job is done correctly, but also to maintain the safety of the construction workers employed on the job.

There are many types of small portable scaffolding towers that can be hired or purchased relatively cheaply for use in a domestic or DIY situation.

DIY scaffolding can be a cost effective alternative to using scaffolding professionals when all the correct procedures are followed.

The scaffolding framework is joined together by the use of scaffolding clamps.

Skimping on price can be costly both economically and emotionally if there were to be an injury or death due to improper or faulty scaffolding.
