Site Safe guidelines state that if the job can’t be safely performed without scaffolding, scaffolding must be supplied, however, scaffolding isn’t the only option. Alternatives to ensure a job is carried out safely, include guardrails and in some cases where necessary, harnesses.
Site Safe: ‘Everyone involved in the scaffolding process must have the knowledge and skills to perform the work safely, regardless of the height of the scaffold. You’ll also need the right certification, depending on the situation.
To set up a scaffold under 5 metres, you must be what is called a ‘competent person’. Being competent means you have: The knowledge and skills to carry out a particular task. This could be gained through training, qualification, or experience, or a combination of these.’
