1. INSPECT SCAFFOLDING Do’s Ensure a professionally qualified person inspects the base work on which the scaffold is grounded and properly matches the structure. If you desire to work with complete peace of mind, then make sure that the individual does the required checks of the ground around the structure and confirms that all nuts and bolts are regularly tightened. Don’t Never ever, make the mistake of assuming the foundation is safe all the time. Scaffolds can deteriorate due to heavy work. More Information About Scaffolding Safety

5. PROTECTION FOR HEAD & FOOT Do’s Working on scaffolding means that somewhere along the line somebody might bang something from a higher floor. So always, wear the right hard hat (safety hat) at all times and be safe. The hat should only be removed when you are offsite, in an office or car. Don’t Never hurriedly climb up a scaffold to take something back, which you forgot. You won’t know when something could fall from above, or you could have a slip on a wet patch. Certainly, it’s not worth to take the risk.
