Why Health and Safety Is So Important in Scaffolding

By on Feb 15, 2022 in Blog, Scaffolding |

Health and safety in the scaffolding industry is very important. In 2019; a Labour Force Survey in Great Britain advised that there were over 600,000 injuries in the workplace. Whilst the UK has some of the very best health and safety regulations in the world, the workplace clearly still produces many challenges. Because of this, unsafe circumstances can occur. 

Erecting and maintaining scaffolding can produce many different types of hazards which result in injury. Being a well established supplier of scaffolding in Derby, we understand the importance of health and safety. Arguably in scaffolding more than any other industry. 

Personal Safety

Starting off with arguably the most obvious reasons is the fact that personal safety is very important when it comes to construction. When an employee comes to work one of the many things they expect is to feel safe at work.

Not only should employees work more efficiently but have a safer work environment will drastically improve employee mental health. 

Efficiency Working 

When a worker undergoes health and safety training they not only garner a better understanding of the health and safety aspects of their jobs but they grossly understand their roles more in-depth. 

As a direct result of this, their working practices can be significantly more effective and even more thorough. 


By thoroughly exerting health and safety practices, you will subsequently obtain revelation and prestigious regulatory accreditations. 

This is a fantastic way to illustrate how incredible your company is. This also provides much needed weight to your potential clients or customers.

Network scaffolding are accredited to many regulatory bodies, including the SSIP and the Worksafe Contractor.
