Mistakes To Avoid When Working on System Scaffolding

When you plan a systems scaffolding rental for an upcoming construction project in Maryland, DC, or Virginia, you will want to make sure that your workers are properly trained and educated on the basics of scaffold safety. Without the proper safety measures, scaffolding can be a very dangerous part of a construction site. Fortunately, your scaffold resource will be able to provide you with tools and training to teach your workers about scaffold safety. Here is a quick look at some mistakes to avoid when you are working on scaffolding.

  1. System Scaffolding Lack of Fall Protection

    In order to protect workers who are using a scaffold system in DC, MD, or VA. make sure that your scaffold is equipped with proper fall protection. A fall from a system scaffolding rental can result in very serious injuries. Your Scaffold Resource team can provide you with guardrails, ladders, and other forms of protective equipment that will help to prevent a fall.

  2. Secure Objects when using System Scaffold
    Along with falling, it is also dangerous to be hit with debris or other objects. When working on scaffolding, you will want to ensure tools and materials that you are using are properly secured in place. It may also be a good idea to place safety nets underneath your scaffold.
  3. Improper System Scaffold Building Specifications

    OSHA requires that all scaffold systems are built with a specific set of safety requirements in mind. When constructing a system scaffold, make sure that your scaffolding meets building and safety specifications. A scaffold that meets specifications will be able to support the weight of workers and construction materials.
