Safely Setting Up Scaffolding Services in Lewisham
At the start of any construction or renovation project taking place in Lewisham or the nearby area, we recommend that you have a safety plan in place so scaffolding companies can deliver first-class scaffolding services on your behalf. At Ideal Scaffolding Ltd, our scaffolding contractors can advise you on how to prepare your project so that our CISRS, CSCS and CHAS trained scaffolding erectors can set up the platforms in a fast and efficient manner.
Tips for Scaffolding Projects
1. Choosing the Right Equipment
Letting scaffolding companies know the ins and out of your project will determine the scaffolding services you require. If you’re unsure about the type of scaffolding equipment you need, our expert scaffolding contractors will recommend the design and supply everything, from the poles to the fixtures and temporary roofs.
2. Checking the Layout of the Land
The foundations of your Lewisham property need to be assessed to consider any potential hazards or health or safety issues. If the ground is uneven or unstable due to extreme weather conditions, scaffolding companies can work around this. Like with immovable obstacles getting in the way of ground-based towers or platforms, our scaffolding erectors can assemble a choice of suspended frames.
3. Prioritising Health and Safety
Ladders, handrails, guardrails and access gates will also be fitted and inspected to prioritise the safety of your Lewisham workforce. In addition to the equipment supplied by scaffolding contractors, we will ensure that all scaffolding erectors use protective clothing when setting up or deconstructing scaffolding, such as gloves, hard hats, hi-vis jackets and goggles.
4. Ensuring Scaffolding Boards are Used
Scaffolding companies will ensure that toe-boards are used to reinforce the structure and allow free-flowing access for builders to transfer materials. The horizontal boards are also well placed for storing tools and supplies while they are being used. Throughout the scaffolding hire period, our scaffolding erectors will check for any damages due to wear and tear, including cracks or gaps which need to be resolved to avoid any spillages.
5. Performing Thorough Inspections
Scaffolding contractors and scaffolding erectors will expertly assemble towers and platforms followed by an inspection before builders or roofers are provided access. Lewisham clients can also expect our scaffolding services to include frequent checks which will be recorded, with any signs of structural damage, including broken clamps, braces or supports.
