Ensure Safety Of Scaffold Tower

Most of the accidents that occur while working on a scaffold tower can be avoided. Proper training and constant awareness are needed to ensure scaffold tower safety. Ensure that a professionally qualified person checks the base work on which the scaffold tower is installed and fits into the structure. If you want to work more carefully, be sure to do a ground check around the structure and ensure that all nuts and bolts are tightened regularly. If you are using make sure you check the condition of it and get the best. Never, ever, make the mistake of assuming the foundation is safe at all times. Scaffold tower conditions can deteriorate due to heavy loads.

Follow all safety guidelines regarding power lines. Within seconds, an electric shock can occur, therefore national safety guidelines regarding power lines must be strictly followed. Supervisors need to ensure that the scaffold tower is not moved beyond the minimum distance from the power line. At all times, you need to make sure you have a team member to monitor and make sure the scaffold tower is safe. Without consulting the appropriate authorities, never move structures, and never neglect safety protocols for this specific job. If you feel uncomfortable with scaffold tower structures or anything to do with your safety, you should talk to your boss and raise your concerns. Do not climb the scaffold tower if you find it dangerous/risky.

Always value the maximum scaffold tower load capacity. The scaffold tower structure requires a capacity strong enough to handle the maximum amount of load. This will only allow an upper limit on labour and materials on scaffold tower and nothing more. Give more than maximum load on a scaffold tower. Quite often, the difference between safety and accidents is just about a few extra pounds, which you may not have considered. When you are in the scaffold tower, you must wear body straps or a complete protection system (safety). It is intended to keep you safe from slips and falls. So use that. While you may be proficient at navigating your way across the scaffold tower matrix, there is still a chance for you to miss a bar, miss a step or imbalance. Keep using protection and always move carefully and slowly.
