Scaffolding Safety Discussion

Common scaffold hazards include unstable bases, inadequate footings and cross bracing, unsafe access and absence of guardrails and defective platforms.

Here are general requirements on safety precaution:
• All scaffolds are to be capable of supporting, without failure, at least 4 times the maximum intended load.
• Never allow debris/materials to collect on scaffold.
• Always use netting to catch anything that falls.
• Make sure scaffold is secure.
• Do not stand on ties, guardrails, or extensions.
• Do not overreach outside the guardrails.
• Stay off scaffold during loading or unloading.
• Replace guardrails after loading or unloading.
• Use 3-point climbing.
• Don’t hang tarps without evaluation.
• Exit mobile scaffolds before moved.
• Always wear fall protection to avoid accidents.
