Health and Safety

One of the most important aspects of any kind of scaffolding erection is health and safety. Health and Safety is of paramount importance to us at Top Scaffolding Ltd, as it is an integral part of our ethos and therefore we have allocated resources to support the objectives of this policy.

Safety is one of our most important aspects

Operatives

We work closely with our operatives to make sure they are aware of new industry standards, enabling them to work safely and confidently on site. Your team, our team and the general public all put their lives in the hands of scaffolds every day. Working on them or walking by them, a poorly designed or constructed scaffold can easily lead to falling objects, people and even entire buildings so it's an area we take really seriously.

It is our policy to provide and maintain a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees, customers, visitors, contractors, and others who may be affected by our activity.

Our policy

We operate a tight health and safety policy including:

  • Full PPE is supplied and worn at all relevant times
  • Checks for firm, level foundations
  • Time planning to avoid construction during busy periods
  • Avoidance of power lines
  • British Standards Equipment
  • Safety barriers at all heights
  • Careful incorporation of ladders and lifts
  • All necessary tie-offs and supports
  • Weekly checks on the structure
We ensure that each operative is given the opportunity to achieve new qualifications through CITB/CISRS training.

Survey Planning

Our team carry out a full survey before starting planning or erection to find workarounds for any potential problems like power lines and level, firm foundations.

We take into account essential concerns such as ladders, load weights and supports throughout the design and ensure that our erection teams are fully conversant with the latest health and safety legislation so that good practice and compliance can be attended to throughout the build.

We acknowledge the requirements of the Construction Industy Regulations.

We understand the legal obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and related health and safety legislation TG20:13 and SG4:10. No matter what your requirements for scaffolding make sure health and safety plays a big role: Contact us today to speak to one of our experienced team to arrange a full survey and quotation.
