What is Scaffolding?
Scaffolding is a temporary platform, often made of wooden planks and metal poles, used to provide a construction team with support throughout a construction project. It can play an important role in a range of construction projects, whether it’s work on a large commercial structure or a home extension, by ensuring the safety of a construction team.
Why is Scaffolding Important?
- Ensures Safety
In the construction industry, safety is a key priority. One of the main roles of scaffolding is to provide a safe and protected workplace where workers can work at a variety of heights. Your team will be able to move safely around a structure to complete their work and the risk of injury will be reduced.
- Easy Access
Working on high-rise buildings and other large structures can be complex. Adding scaffolding will help your team to reach areas that would otherwise be hard to get to.
- Position Advantage
Scaffolding will also allow your team to reach any wall, ceiling or window. It’s a perfect addition to any building site compared to a ladder which doesn’t offer a solid platform for workers to balance on.
Using scaffolding will allow several workers to operate at the same time and carry out harder tasks with ease, therefore increasing productivity.
Where Can Scaffolding Be Used?
- Cleaning Windows
Places such as hotels, shops and business take huge pride in their appearance. Especially with big hotels and firms, the building’s architecture should always look spotless to entice potential customers. That’s why it is important to keep the windows clean. Since windows cleaners will often work at heights, it is necessary to use the correct equipment to support them and keep them safe. Using scaffolding will allow a window cleaner to work more effectively.
When painting a building, painters are often required to work at great heights. Many believe that a ladder is sufficient when painting, however, it will not offer the same support and assistance, especially in strong winds. Using scaffolding will give workers the confidence to work at height and will help them to reach hard to reach areas.
- Building Maintenance and Repairs
If your building is undergoing either repairs or maintenance work, it’s important to ensure that everyone working on site is safe and not at risk from any faults in the building’s structure.
- Civil Engineering
In construction work, civil engineers take an important role in planning and upholding site safety. Safe scaffolding will be vital when civil engineers come to inspect and survey the progress of work on site.
- Building Inspections
A building inspection will check the credibility and safety of a building.
- Home Improvement
Large home improvement renovations such as loft conversions, extensions and gutter replacements may need scaffolding in place to complete the project. Depending on the scale of the project, proper scaffolding must be erected to make work on the property as safe as possible.
No matter what size the project is, safety should always be of primary importance.
