Scaffold Safety Tips

  • Be mindful before you throw anything off a scaffold.
  • Always follow directions when putting the scaffold together.
  • If there is obvious damage to any part of the scaffold, do not climb it.
  • Use safety belts and harnesses especially if you are working over 10 feet off the ground.
  • Do not use a scaffold that is only partially put together.
  • Watch for bad weather – do not work on a scaffold during windy conditions or a storm.
  • Always make sure wire mesh is installed underneath scaffolding.
  • Enter and exit scaffolding appropriately.
  • If using a mobile scaffold, never move it with a person on it.
