Plans To Build Scaffolding

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

Scaffolding tubes are now usually constructed of galvanised steel but historically have been made of wooded staves and bamboo.

Make sure all planks and walk boards are at least 36 inches below the highest point of any portable scaffolding.

The putlog scaffold has standards or uprights along its outer edges, but its inner side is supported by the structure or building itself. Putlogs have flattened ends that are placed between courses of brickwork in the building or edifice to add support.

Scaffolding costs could rocket if you are hiring scaffolding and your project becomes delayed.

It is estimated that 65% of those employed in the construction industry frequently work on scaffolds.

It is crucial that proper inspection of scaffolding bars is carried out before and after their erection.

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

When a scaffolding accident is reported the responsibility will often lie with the scaffolding companies, architects or engineers.

Scaffolding is fairly easy to erect and shorter towers can even be set up by two unskilled people. In most instances though, when scaffolding is being used on the construction or remodeling of a tall building, only trained professionals are allowed to erect the towers.
