Ultimate Guide to Scaffold Tower Safety Standards

Ultimate Guide to Scaffold Tower Safety Standards
07/11/2019

Scaffolding is used for the primary purpose of creating as safe a workspace for construction workers as possible. If they have access to a safe, stable scaffold, they are better able to work at heights with less risk of taking a fall.

One of the most common forms of scaffolding is the scaffold tower. These systems must be well-maintained, assembled, and used correctly to ensure that they remain as safe as possible.

This guide will go through the dangers involved with using a scaffold tower and provide tips on how to prevent them.

Why is Scaffold Tower Safety Important? When it comes to scaffold tower safety, the primary concern should of course be your workers. Safely maintained towers that are used by trained workers, are key in preventing injuries when people are working at a height.

In addition to this, when workers are confident about safety, they can focus on their work. This increases productivity. Finally, there are regulations governing the safe use and construction of scaffold towers.

Is There a Difference Between Scaffolding And Scaffold Towers? A scaffold tower is one type of scaffold. It is a portable, free-standing platform that can be assembled and disassembled to be moved to and from different work sites.

When you hire tower scaffolding, you put this together yourself, and can move it around your worksite to complete various jobs. This is unlike regular scaffolding which must be assembled by professionals, and tends to be fixed in place once it has been put together.
