5 questions about scaffolding

As a leading scaffolding company, our customers often ask us questions about scaffolding. In this article, we have collected 5 main questions and answered them in the most detail. Keep reading to learn more about scaffolding.

What is scaffolding for?

Scaffolding is a temporarily erected structure with platforms used for access to heights and provides enough space for workers to get the job done. Scaffolding is also used to store construction equipment and materials without the hassle of climbing up and down stairs, saving builders time and is much safer than lifting materials up stairs every day.

Will there be free access to the building if there are scaffolding?

Scaffolding work can be done during off-peak hours, which means there are no restrictions on daily access to the building. Builders may need to obtain permission to temporarily close a sidewalk or street before work is completed. You will need to install guardrails and signs on walkways nearby to warn people to stay away while still providing access to the sidewalk for people with disabilities.

Do I need to apply for permission?

If scaffolding is being erected on your property, you do not need to apply for a permit. However, if scaffolding is installed on or above a public road, highway, sidewalk or footpath, a permit will be required.

Can scaffolding be erected on uneven ground?

For health and safety reasons, scaffolding must not be installed on uneven ground. This may increase the risk of collapse or fall of parts of the scaffolding and endanger workers. The ground should be as level as possible and able to support the weight of the scaffolding in all weather conditions.

How do you ensure the safety and health of your employees?

No matter how big or small the project is, the safety of all the people involved in the project is critical. Our top priority is the health and safety of our employees and the general public. We adhere to a strict health and safety policy. To prevent workers and materials from falling off the scaffolding, handrails are installed and the scaffolding is covered with a net.
