    5 The gap between toe-boards and mid guard-rails and between mid and top guard-rails must not exceed 470mm.

    3 Hoist materials up from the inside of the tower.
    4 Tie the tower to a permanent structure where possible.
    5 Don’t move the tower if people or materials are still on the platform. Don’t pull the tower along while standing on it
