Any good professional Balham scaffolding firm will take health and safety very seriously. Working at height and using scaffolding structures does pose risks, but a reputable Balham scaffolding contractor will understand their responsibilities in this area and take steps to ensure the safety of everyone on or near to your construction site.
However, it’s important to check that any Balham scaffolding contractor you hire does pay due regard to health and safety, as ultimately the responsibility for site safety will lie with you, the site owner or manager.
Here are some things to check with your Balham scaffolding firm before they begin work:
- check your Balham scaffolder is insured to cover the safety of everyone on the site and the general public around it – this means they should have employer’s and public liability insurance policies.
- ensure any Balham scaffolding firm you use is competent and skilled at identifying and dealing with health and safety risks – ask to see their CISRS cards as evidence of this.
- make sure anyone working on your site is given a thorough briefing about health risks, so they know how to work safely, report any issues and what to do in an emergency
- ensure your Balham scaffolding company sends a representative back to your site at least weekly, to inspect the scaffolding construction to check it’s still safe.
