Following the latest safety regulations
Every project Network Scaffold undertakes works in line with the Government’s Work at Height Regulations, which include –
- Only properly trained and competent scaffold contractors can be used to set up scaffold towers and structures
- It is the responsibility of the contractor to obtain the relevant and correct licences for the scaffold to be set up on public highways and pavements
- The company employing the scaffolders must also check they have the correct licence, that is in date and won’t expire before the works are completed
- If the scaffold is erected in a public place, the company should schedule work during quieter times to lower the risk to passers-by
- Once erected, all scaffolding needs to be thoroughly inspected before it is used. Inspections should then take place every day, after any alterations to the structure or extreme weather conditions
