The purpose of this guidance is to provide guidance on the management of long-standing scaffolding structures. Throughout the industry scaffolds are erected to provide long-term access requirements and often remain in position for many months or even years, for example temporary yard sheds, scaffolding material racking systems, maintenance scaffolds etc.

The ‘good practice’ document has been produced by the NASC, it is a completely updated version. It provides guidance for scaffolders on the planning and safe use of construction hoists, including transport platforms, used for moving scaffolding materials during the erection and dismantling of scaffolding.
More than a quarter of the accidents reported each year by NASC members to enforcing authorities are associated with manual handling – the transporting or supporting of loads by hand, or by bodily force. A well-established document that proved to still be robust and valid. Hence date changes only in the 2015 update.
Substance abuse affects the functioning of both body and mind and can increase the chance of having or causing an accident. The damaging health effects of substance abuse may increase when combined with exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace.
The purpose of a brickguard is to prevent materials from falling off the working platform of the scaffold where toeboards do not offer sufficient protection. The inclusion or omission of brickguards should be considered when discussing the contract.
