The purpose of this guidance note is to give scaffold contractors an appreciation of the minimum requirements governing a contract of employment between an employer and employee.
This guidance provides a comprehensive and useful list of areas within the business to focus on to ensure a scaffolding contractor remains profitable and in business.
It is quite common for the employers of scaffolding companies to adjust the Applications for Payment / Invoices submitted by the scaffolder. The process is often referred to as setting-off. This guidance outlines the rules for setting-off and also offers guidance on potential remedies to the Scaffolding Company.
This guidance note relates to schedules intended to be used for the valuation of additional work and/or variations to existing lump sum contracts. For the avoidance of doubt this guidance note does not relate to schedules of rates used in connection with contracts which are re-measured as the works proceed.
This is an instruction manual for managing a project and relies on knowledge, skill and expertise to operate it. The mechanisms have to be understood and complied with. Those intending to subcontract under this form should, as a minimum, obtain and read the form and its associated guidance notes.
The reliance by the scaffolding contractor, on the skill and expertise of their operatives, will not relieve them of their responsibility for the adequacy of the design.
