- It is also very easy to set up. ASC Edinburgh Ltd has the expertise and experience to install the scaffolding quickly and get building work started as soon as possible.

When Must Scaffolding Be Checked?
By law, scaffolding must be checked to make sure it is safe. It must be checked:
- Before the construction team use it for the first time
- Every seven days when it is up
- After any alterations, damage or extreme weather conditions
Here at ASC Edinburgh Ltd, we will be able to visit your building site, inspect the scaffolding and provide all the certification you need to prove the scaffolding’s integrity. We will be able to provide this either in the form of a scaffolding report or as simple a check certificate.
Who Can Put Up Scaffolding?
When putting up scaffolding, an appropriate level of supervision must be available and as a minimum requirement, there should always be a competent scaffolder on site who has received full training on the type and complexity of the scaffolding they’re working on, whether that is erecting, altering or dismantling the structure.
We ensure that our scaffolding team are trained and experienced to the highest level, to ensure complete safety when erecting, altering and using scaffolding.
