An informative A2 poster that provides an introduction and overview of the NASC’s SG4:15 Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations guidance. This poster is intended to help site managers, contractors and supervisors ensure operatives carrying out scaffolding operations on their site are working at height safely by adhering to the measures laid out in SG4.
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.
The legal requirement for rescue is specified in the ‘Work at Height Regulations 2005’ and require every employer in selecting work equipment for use in work at height to take account of the need for easy and timely evacuation and rescue in an emergency.
Employers are responsible for establishing an inspection regime for the inspection of fall protection equipment that is produced and implemented by a competent person. A Register of equipment should be compiled for use in managing the inspection regime.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to operatives involved in scaffolding operations during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The NASC has recently proposed a minimum set of requirements for any scaffold built on a public highway.
The primary objective of this guidance is to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of our workforce. It has been produced to assist the scaffolding industry in complying with the current Covid-19 safety guidelines.
