New HSE Checklist for Safe Scaffolding Practice

WITH HIGH winds sweeping across the UK this week, the HSE has released a report to ensure scaffolders carry out the correct procedures to ensure safe working conditions on site.

The guide intends to clarify when a scaffold design is required and what level of training and competence those erecting, dismantling, altering, inspecting and supervising scaffolding operations are expected to have.

The ‘Scaffold Checklist’ provides an in-depth breakdown of correct procedures during scaffold design, supervision and inspection. It also highlights the requirements of the Work at Height Regulations (2005) and the recognised standard of configuration that all scaffolded sites should adhere to.

The guide is freely available on the HSE website.
