Scaffolding Provider Supporting Mental Health Awareness

Scaffolding Provider Supporting Mental Health Awareness

By on Oct 15, 2019 in Blog |

As a considerate employer and scaffold provider Network Scaffold, always ensure all of our staff are supported through any mental health issues. In our latest blog, we are going to discuss a new initiative from the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation to support scaffolders. World Mental Health Day supports Scaffolders The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation recently announced, as part of World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2019, that they will be offering free guidance and advice on mental health. The aim of this campaign is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and raising awareness of the different support services available to workers in the scaffolding industry. This has been one of the key objectives of the NASC’s Head for Heights campaign, which started last year. One of the key achievements of the campaign to date has been the production of SG38:19, dedicated health and wellbeing policy guidance. This document is designed to help employers adopt a clear approach to provision and includes resources, advice and contact details of other organisations who can provide support. Another resource from the NASC is the mental health toolbox talk, which has been circulated to over 300 members and is a short presentation that instructs employers how to start conversations with their employees about their mental health.

What is the Best Type of Scaffolding in Nottingham?

What is the Best Type of Scaffolding in Nottingham?

By on May 6, 2019 in Blog |

Scaffolding in Nottingham from Network Scaffold has a variety of uses and we know the best type to use, helping you achieve the best results in your building project. Here we are going to look at the three different forms of scaffolding and the sort of jobs you should be using them for: Single Scaffolding – Generally used for brick properties and sometimes referred to as brick scaffolding, consisting of one vertical support. Double Scaffolding – Commonly used for stone masonry, this sort of scaffolding is used on stone walls especially when you can’t always make holes in the wall to attach supports. Consisting of two scaffolding rows, this system is more robust and stands independently. Cantilever Scaffolding – Cantilever scaffolding angles out from a building in scenarios where the scaffold cannot be based on the ground. This system is supported by a chain of needles that are pulled out with holes in the wall. Typically used to reduce the chances of damage to the structure underneath, the cantilevered area extends over slopes or glazed roofs and weak surfaces. Extra care is taken when adding this type of scaffolding to a building. Safety is the Key for Scaffolding in Nottingham Network Scaffold are fully committed to providing the best types of scaffolding, plus making sure it’s completely safe for everyone working on it and the general public surrounding the work. We have a rolling program of continued professional development with all of our staff to ensure we are always working towards the latest industry standards.

Stay Safe with Scaffolding in Nottingham

Stay Safe with Scaffolding in Nottingham

By on Apr 23, 2019 in Blog |

Scaffolding in Nottingham projects will be incident free if your crew are wearing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). Working at height carries its own dangers, so making sure your workers are fully trained and competent as well as being in line with the latest regulations is crucial. A staggering 65% of building projects will utilise some sort of scaffold, scaffolding supplies or access systems (such as Alloy Towers) for repairs, maintenance or construction; meaning additional care and hazard awareness is essential. Protection While Working on Scaffolding in Nottingham Here is your checklist for PPE for working on scaffolding – Hard Hat that meets UK Safety Regulations – Every worker on a construction site needs to wear a hard hat that fits and is appropriately sized. This is particularly important for those working at height to provide protection against falling debris, material and objects. Safety Glasses – If your job is deemed to be at risk from flying debris or loose material that could cause damage to your eyes, protective goggles or safety glasses must be worn. Workers in a welding environment must have safety glasses with added UV protection. Protective Gloves – Workers who could be exposed to chemicals, very low temperatures, extremely high temperatures or electrical currents will need protective gloves. Safety Harness – Scaffolders who could be exposed to a fall of six feet or more need to be equipped with a safety harness. Also, note it’s important not to attach the safety harness to the scaffolding structure. Protective Boots – Steel toe cap or protective boots with an anti-slip tread will help protect workers when working with heavy materials on a construction site. As experienced contractors Network Scaffold provide the finest scaffolding in Nottingham for any commercial or domestic project. Health and safety are bred into our culture so we will always ensure every job we work on is as safe as possible.
