Why construction sites need scaffolds

Many start-up construction companies these days make the mistake of not equipping themselves appropriately for the task at hand and end up feeling the sting of such a choice when they hit the job and find that it is ten times more difficult than they thought it would be.

Tools and equipment are made for a reason and that is to take the strain away from construction work among other benefits, yet often people believe they will cut costs by just using the basics.

There are many reasons why labourers should be making good use of the equipment available and the first and foremost reason is safety. Ensuring that the correct equipment is used will certainly save any worker from injury at some point or another and, likewise, the hiring company a lot of costs in compensation for such injuries.

Using tools such as scaffolds, for instance, ensures that there is a proper grounds to ensure that workers are provided the safest environment possible to work in and minimalizes the risk of injury tenfold.

In fact, scaffolds are a perfect example to use for the next reason which is ‘productivity’.

A good way to consider it is whether someone juggling a ladder around, with a limited reach while having to constantly climb up and down to move the ladder to the next spot will achieve more, or someone who can move much more freely on a scaffold would have more success.

Productivity certainly skyrockets when the right tools are implemented, which in turn allows for more work to be done, ergo more profit in the long run. To put it simply; more work done equals more pay and proper equipment equals more productivity.

Who is responsible for scaffolds?

Placing scaffolds onto the market for sale

Those scaffolds that are placed onto the Australian market must be safe. The only way to show that they are safe is if they fulfil the requirements in the provisions about scaffolds. Manufacturers, importers and distributors are responsible for the scaffolds doing just this.

For prefabricated scaffolds and couplers to tube and coupler scaffolds, this means that they must be type examined. A completed type examination entails that the product (the scaffold, the components of the scaffold or the coupling) is scrutinised by an accredited certification body, and that the certification body found that the product fulfilled applicable requirements. The body shall then issue a type examination certificate.

The technical demands appear in AS/NZS1576,1577,3610.Due to differences in climate, working methods, and the design between different countries, there are also a number of possible options in the standards. The aim of this is that one or more of the alternatives shall be chosen for a certain country.

The scaffolds(kwikstage, Ringlock, Shroing frame) provided by ADTO Group in Australia have beed passed the relative AS/NZS standards and obtain relating certificates.

Using scaffolds

Those who use a scaffold for carrying out work, or as protection against falls from height during roof work or similar, are responsible for doing it in the correct way. It is not permitted to overload the scaffolding working deck or to load several working levels at the same time, if the scaffold is not designed for it.

One may also not remove stabilising or other necessary components from the scaffold. The guardrail can, however, be temporarily dismantled to, for example, bring in building material, if it is closely monitored and, in general, done in a safe way.

It is particularly important that material is organised in a well-thought-out way on the scaffold. There have been serious accidents when one has loaded material onto the scaffold with a telescopic truck crane and destabilised the scaffold so that parts of it have collapsed.

During the check that the provider carries out before it is signed over, the user shall, if possible, participate, so that he or she can make sure that the scaffolding is suitable for the work to be carried out. The documents that the provider hands over shall remain at the workplace. If the scaffolding is to be used by several companies on a construction site, the documentation shall also be handed over to the construction work environment coordinator for execution. The user shall later continually check the scaffolding during the time it is in use.

A special situation is when a user erects a scaffold in order to use it themselves. He or she is then responsible both for the provisions that applies to erecting the scaffold, as well as for the provisions that applies to using the scaffold.

Another situation is when a user allows other companies to carry out work from the scaffold. They are then providers and must follow the specific rules that apply when providing a scaffold.

How to set steel scaffold screw jack

1. Place each vertical lever vertically on the pad.

2. The vertical bar of the scaffold is 20cm away from the wall of the wall, and the feet are more than 20cm.

3. The scaffold is afraid of the vertical and horizontal sweep. The vertical sweep rod is fixed on a vertical rod with a right Angle fastener, which is not more than 200 on the base. The horizontal sweep lever is also fixed by a right Angle fastener on the vertical bar under the vertical sweep rod. When the vertical rod based not on the same height, must be high vertical sweeping lever downward extension of two long across and vertical rod is fixed, high and low difference is not less than 1 m. Scaffolding screw jack stand on slope at the top of the stem axis to the slope distance not less than 500 mm.

4. The upright rod must be connected to the building with a connected wall.

5. The top step of the vertical rod shall be adopted by the top step, and the other layers shall be used. Connect the connection of the scaffolding coupler. The joints and joints shall meet the following requirements. Stud on the docking scaffolding coupler staggered, two adjacent stud joints staggered, not set up within the synchronization, synchronization across a vertical rod inside the two joints in the height direction of stagger distance apart should not less than 500, the distance form the centre of the joint to the master node is not greater than 1/3 of the interval.

The length of the lap shall not be less than 1m, shall be fixed with no less than 2 rotating fasteners, and the edge of the end of the end of the plate shall not be less than 100mm.

5 Safety Tips When Working with Scaffolding

Don’t sacrifice safety and efficiency for speed; use these five tips from ADTO Group to keep workers safe when working with scaffolding

Fall prevention is one of the biggest buzz words of construction safety. Fall prevention permeates so many different areas of construction, including scaffolding use and safety. ADTO Groupa global supplier of scaffolding, shoring frame & formwork, recently get a list of five scaffolding safety tips designed to help contractors “stay proactive about scaffolding safety”.

Tip 1: Slow down or consider efficiency building alternatives

While the pace at which construction work gets finished is often important to projects and budgets, it can also influence careless and costly mistakes, including gaps in safety on the jobsite. By focusing on greater efficiency, safety does not have to be comprised

Tip 2: Keep your workplace organized

Avoid slip, trip and fall hazards by keeping the worksite organized. When working with scaffolding, keeping tools organized can reduce the risk of tools falling from scaffolding. It can also make moving around on the scaffolding safer for workers.

Tip 3: Identify Hazards

This should be done before work starts and while work is being done. Identify possible hazards and solutions prior to the start of work. Working near power lines? Keep scaffolding far enough away to prevent electrocution risks. Will the scaffolding need to be moved during the project? Form a game plan before each erection.

Tip 4: Proper training

As with all aspects of a construction jobsite, make sure your workers are trained and up to date with OSHA requirements.  Training in the setup and construction of scaffolding can ensure a solid work space for overhead workers and guarantee a rig that will not inadvertently collapse from instability.

Tip 5: Review the site

In addition to identifying hazards, continue to review the worksite throughout the construction project to identify any new hazards that might arise during construction. Keeping an eye out for possible hazards can help eliminate them from happening. As work continues on, workers will become more comfortable on the job. This can cause some to inadvertently (or blatantly) neglect safety.

What is the shoring frame system in Formwork construction sites?

The V-Shore System is a high load conventional shoring system consisting of three components: frames, braces and jacks, fast to erect and strip.

It’s very popular in the domestic and small commercial building sector, and offers the benefits of saving costs on inventory, improved productivity and design versatility.

It is the ideal system for civil engineering projects such as the construction of highway bridges or the laying of heavy slabs or beams.

The usage of shoring frame system

Shoring frame in the building construction project is indispensable, provide a safe guarantee for construction operations staff.

The use of the shoring frame:

  1. Shoring frame scaffold used in building, halls, Bridges, overpass, tunnel and other template supporting roof or fly die within the frame.
  2.  As high-rise buildings, both inside and outside gate scaffolding.
  3. Used for mechanical and electrical installation, ship hull building and other decoration engineering activities of the working platform.
  4. Use shoring frames scaffold with simple roof, can constitute a temporary site dormitory, the warehouse or barrack.
  5. Used for erection of temporary balcony and stand.
