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.

The Building of Scaffolding Tubes is the Beginning of the Project

Scaffolding refers to the construction site for workers operation and solve the vertical and horizontal transportation and erection of all kinds of support.

Architecture of the generic term, refers to the construction site in exterior, interior, or higher storey height can’t construction directly. Mainly for construction personnel working up and down or peripheral safety maintenance and high altitude installation components etc, to put it bluntly, is which the scaffold materials usually are: bamboo, wood, steel or synthetic materials.

Some works also use scaffolding tubes when the template is used, in addition in the advertising industry, municipal, transportation, mining and other departments is also widely used. ADTO scaffolding rental scaffolding, scaffolding construction good helper, is your right choice.

After the removal of scaffolding square tube should be according to the first open principle, according to the following procedures: from cross-border open at the top of the armrest and baluster at first, and then dismantle scaffold board and escalators, and unload horizontal rod reinforcing rod and bracing.

Since the top edge began to remove cross sustaining, synchronous remove the top bracing rod with the wall top door frame. Continue to phase synchronization under the demolition of the second step the door frame and accessories. Scaffold free cantilever height shall not exceed three steps, or shall provide temporary Rachel.

To remove the continuous synchronization. For even the wall rod, scissors, long horizontal, must be removed in the scaffold to relevant across the door frame, before dismantling. Demolition of sweeping bar, the bottom door frame and sealing bar. Demolition of base plate and pad.

What is the ringlock scaffolding?

ADTO Ringlock scaffolding is  a modular system. It is composed of ringlock standards, ringlock ledger, diagonal braces, base collars, triangle brackets and wedge pins. Rosettles are welded to the standards in every 500mm

Ringlock system is a safe and effiecient scaffold system. Due to hot dip galvanization, this scaffolding system has high corrosion resistance. They are widely used in the construction of bridges, tunnels, water towers, oil refinery and etch.

Nowadays, the ringlock scaffold is more and more popular in Australian market, especially for high buildings

Environmental supervision:Limited production

As the environmental prtection, the government put greater attention on the plant pollution these days.
Central Environmental Protection Team ordered all acid-related producers in Jinghai District, Tianjin cease production from May 1. Most local galvanizers were forced to shut down.When they will restart is still indeterminate.

 

It  understands production at some galvanizers in Jinghai District had been restricted in mid-April. More plants halted operation in May.

About 200 local galvanizing lines will be affected, whose monthly zinc consumption total 40,000-50,000 tonnes per month.

Further, more and more factories relating scaffold are shut down by order, it exceed 80%. Under such circumstance, the supplying of scaffold is decreased dramatically, and the prices will be much higher after this environmental supervision.

We are sorry to say that our factories stop production these days and wait for the better situation.

Limit production of scaffold

Nowadays, the government put greater attention on the environment protection.

Not only in Tianjin City but also in other province of north China like, Hebei province, Shandong province.

More and more factories of steel are closed as time going by. Under such serious circumstance, the supplying of steel products is decreasing dramatically.

ADTO scaffold application

For the 70 years anniversary of Inner Mongolia, the buidling of metro station is launched.

It is our honor to pubilc that our ringlock scaffold serve the metro station and the scaffold are used as the shoring for the station.

Quality builds future.

Definitely, our scaffolds will move forward progressivrely.
