Engaging the services of a Clapham scaffolding company is a must for the vast majority of building and construction projects in the local area. Whether you’re a home owner or you manage a large construction site, it’s important to be aware of your legal obligations and safety requirements when using a Clapham scaffolding fim.
1. Firstly, you should always check that your Clapham scaffolding contractor is both trained and competent. Ask to see their CISRS cards as proof of this.
2. If any of the scaffold construction needs to sit on a pavement or public road, then you’ll need a licence for it. Your Clapham scaffolding firm will normally be able to arrange this for you, but it’s your legal responsibility to check. If the licence expires while the project is still running, it’s also your responsibility to renew it.
3. Once the Clapham scaffolding company has erected structures at your property or site, it’s also your legal responsibility to make sure it’s safe. This means your Clapham scaffolding contractor should return to the site regularly to inspect the structure every seven days. This should also happen before the scaffolding is used for the first time, after the structure has been altered, if the structure becomes damaged, and during any extreme weather conditions. This is a job for a qualified scaffolding expert, so don’t be tempted to inspect it yourself.
