Essential Scaffolding Safety Tips

Collaborative Inspection

Scaffolding can make working on a tall structure much safer and easier, but even the sturdiest scaffolding cannot eliminate risk altogether. If you’re planning on working on scaffolding in the near future, it’s important that you follow a few essential safety tips.

First off, it’s important for a competent person to supervise the assembly of scaffolding, which should be done in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Workers should avoid working on scaffolding in windy conditions, and they must make sure the scaffolding isn’t wobbling or leaning. If scaffolding shows any sign of wear or damage, do not mount it. It’s also a good idea to use a safety belt when working above 10 feet—a person can be killed from a fall of 11 feet. As long as you obey the proper safety procedures, you and your crew should avoid injury.
