SG4:15 - 'Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations' - see's more emphasis on the creation of a 'Safe Zone' by scaffolders covering a variety of safe methods. This revision also see's the removal of the practice of the 'unprotected traversing element' from the tunneling principle.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requires that employers give all employees sufficient information, training & supervision as is necessary for their Health & Safety. A broad guidance reminding us to ensure good preparation and emphasising to employees the areas of responsibility we all have in working safely.
This guidance outlines how employers should complete their risk assessments as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations. As employers you must carry out an assessment to identify the hazards, evaluate the risks to employees and identify any control measures which should be implemented.
Initially there is no structure in place against which the scaffold can be tied. The scaffold may surround a structure, but it is still vital that measures to ensure stability are incorporated. Accordingly the initial stability of the scaffold structure must be achieved by means other than ties. Design input is still critical.
Construction workers including scaffolders need adequate toilet and washing facilities, a place to warm up and eat food and somewhere to store clothing, keeping street clothing separate from work clothing to avoid any contamination.
