An Introduction to Scaffolding Safety

 

Scaffolding Erectors in HeathrowThe following section introduces the key considerations any scaffolding company has to factor into its scaffolding hire services. We support these considerations with initial and ongoing training for our local scaffolders, and by providing onsite toolbox talks so that you, your personnel or the tradespersons you hire can always work at height safely.

 

Work at Height Regulations 2005

 

The cornerstone of safety for all scaffolding erectors, these regulations apply to all work where there is a risk of people falling and injuring themselves. The duty to ensure adherence to these measures falls with those who control work at height activity. In this case, your choice of local scaffolders.

 

Under these regulations, a scaffolding company must:

 

  • Follow the correct hierarchy of control
  • Assess risks for working at height
  • Plan and organise work at height
  • Ensure competency of its erectors
  • Select the right equipment for the job
  • Manage risk of work on fragile surfaces
  • Inspect and maintain scaffolding equipment

 

Scaffold Assembly

 

All scaffolding hire services provided by our team, in the Camberley, Kingston, Maidenhead or Richmond areas, must see the assembly, dismantling and any alterations made safely. For fixed scaffolds, our scaffolders work to the SG4 ‘Preventing Falls in Scaffolding’ document provided by the NASC.

 

Regarding mobile scaffold towers, our scaffolding erectors follow one of two options depending on the job at hand, either ‘through the trap’ (3T) or ‘advanced guard rail’ (AGR).

 

Our scaffolding hire services also comply with TG20:13 (Good Practice Guidance for Tube and Fitting Scaffolding).

 

Scaffold Inspection

 

In order to uphold rigorous safety standards, our scaffolding company must inspect structures as follows:

 

  • Immediately after assembly or prior to first use
  • Every subsequent 7 days thereafter
  • After events which impact safety like extreme weather

 

Strict adherence to these, and to other regulations, ensure the ongoing safety of our local scaffolders, your builders and tradespeople, and the general public. Our company upholds safety standards on domestic or commercial scaffolding projects, anywhere within a 20-mile radius of Ashford.
