When Would I Need Scaffolding – Peak Scaffolding Crawley

When would I need Scaffolding?

Simply put, when working at any height, scaffolding is essential from a project safety perspective.

How to determine if scaffolding is required

The first port of call to assess whether scaffolding is required for your project is with a thorough risk assessment.

Ideally a qualified professional undertakes this, and the results of the assessment will determine if you need any form of scaffolding. This ranges from a basic scaffold or temporary structure, all the way through to more advanced scaffolding structures.

Have a read below and if any of the following headings apply to you see what we recommend!

Working at height?

Scaffolding is essential to ensure safety. Scaffolding structures provide a stable platform for workers to feel safe and secure while on the job. It also protects the public – which is of equal importance. Roofing work is an example of home improvement where scaffolding is a given.

Long project duration?

Even more essential. The health & safety risk increases with the project lasting longer. Scaffolding also helps protect the unfinished work and equipment – especially during unfavourable weather.

Extensive job with lots of labour?

For big projects that require multiple scaffs, scaffolding is the best way to allow them to move around the site safely and conveniently. Scaffolding structures also provide the safe transportation of equipment and materials from height to ground levels.

What activities require scaffolding?

Construction, demolition, and substantial repairs or improvements of a property be it residential or commercial all require scaffolding.

Home improvements

Whenever a property owner decides to conduct a renovation, extension, or any improvement work, erecting scaffold is essential.

Any scaffold structure provides workers with easy access to high and difficult-to-reach places, along with peace of mind – allowing them to perform their work more efficiently knowing that they are safe.

Painting and decorating

Painting and decorating the outside of a property may require working at a substantial height – always comes with health & safety risks.

Scaffolding is important to painters and decorators so that they can carry out their work with ease. Along with being safe themselves, the working platform also provides a safe place for their tools and equipment.

Roof and gutter repairs

Again, this is always at height. The risk of injury or death from falling from height is always there

In the unfortunate event when a tragic accident occurs, this is often due to unstable working surfaces such as loose tiles or weak roof structures that might give way and case a worker to lose their footing and slip. With scaffolding in place, workers don’t need to directly stand on the building/roof surface itself. The structure also provides a safe perimeter around the building. Guttering work requires mobility, so mobile scaffold towers can

Window Cleaning

Cleaning the windows of tall buildings, like hotels, apartments & office buildings may require scaffolding.

There’s nothing safer than properly installed scaffolding to provide the window cleaners with a stable and secure working platform

Building inspections

Every so often the structural integrity of a building needs to be checked over. To safely conduct the inspection procedure, scaffolding is always the first port-of-call.
