    Scaffolding Overview

    Scaffolding has been an integral part of the construction trade for thousands of years. Allegedly even the Great Pyramids of Egypt used an early version of Scaffolding! The post war rebuilding projects of the 1950's produced a huge market for a more modern and practical type of Scaffolding, which led to the invention of the "Tube and Fitting" type scaffolding commonly seen today as well as other types including CupLok, Haki, Layher and KwikStage.

    Scaffolding is one of the most important part of the Construction Industry, with many other trades are dependant on Scaffolding to be able to work themselves. British Scaffolding also requires tradesmen to be fully qualified and trained under CITB and CISRS certifications, these qualified Scaffolders are highly sought after for their expertise and experience all over the world.

    Scaffolding and the HSE Guidelines

    Under the health and safety guidelines, all employees should be competent for the type of scaffolding work they are undertaking, having received appropriate training relevant to the type and form of scaffolding they are working on. As a minimum each scaffold gang should contain an appropriately qualified scaffolder who has received training under an industry recognised training scheme and has been awarded the scaffolder card. Trainee scaffolders should always work under the direct supervision of a qualified scaffolder.

    Scaffolders are classed as trainees until they have completed the approved training and assessment required. The erection, alteration and dismantling of complex scaffolding should be done under the direct supervision of a competent person such as a qualified Advanced scaffolder, a design engineer with the necessary industry experience or an individual who has received training under a recognised scheme.

    Hiring Scaffolding Companies

    You might need scaffolding for a variety of reasons, whatever the reason it's essential that you choose a qualified, experienced company to erect the scaffolding safely and in accordance with UK regulations. Scaffolding regulations in the UK exist to reduce falls from height and ensure that those who work on and with scaffolding are qualified. To ensure safety scaffolding companies should provide risk assessments and method statements, erect scaffolding on a firm and level ground, use protective barriers to prevent falls, check that the scaffolding remains secure each week and after severe weather, use hoists to move heavy items and get a licence if they are required to work on a highway or pavement.

    It's always a good idea to look for a scaffolding company that's registered with an established Scaffolding Association in the UK. While this doesn't ensure quality, these companies often have to pass rigorous checks so are normally reputable. The main UK scaffolding association is the National Access and Scaffolding Federation.

    All members of this association are independently audited, VAT registered, have a minimum of £5 million Public Liability insurance and £10 million employee's liability cover, are trained to adhere with UK scaffolding regulations and adhere to a code of conduct set by the National Access and Scaffolding Federation. To help you choose which scaffolding business to hire, always ask for proof of employees training credentials, check they're insured, ask for references and get multiple quotes.
