Plans To Build Scaffolding

The length of your scaffolding accident compensation claim will vary depending on the severity of your injuries. If you have suffered only minor injuries and the insurer accepts responsibility for the accident then you may well be able to settle your claim in a matter of weeks. However, if you need private medical treatment this can prolong the claim as a settlement cannot take place before a full assessment of your injuries can be obtained.

Remember to be careful whenever you're erecting scaffolding on soft, frozen or suspect ground.

As of late, the pressures within the construction industry have caused the cost of scaffolding to become relatively stable.

Scaffolding platforms should consist of undressed 2x10s that have been properly inspected and graded. The maximum allowable gap between planks is 1".

There are three standard sizes of scaffolding boards, they are 63mm, 50mm, and 38mm.

There are two primary categories of scaffolding, fixed and mobile.

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

Safety is paramount in construction scaffolding as builders are dependent on their scaffolding for their own safety.

Scaffolding tubes are usually connected with metal 'Clams' (clamps) which offer a versatile and effective method for the erection of scaffolding.

By leaving a section of scaffolding platform open you will create a gap to rise and lower scaffolding components between levels.
