Working above head height is a common thing in the United Kingdom, but even with all the health and safety rules that are currently in place, people still manage to fall and hurt themselves. Painters for example, need to be able to move easily across the outside of a building, but this is made difficult for them as they have to constantly climb down the ladder, move it a little to the left and then climb up again. Their reluctance to come down again means that they tend to overreach and this is when accidents happen.
Scaffolding is a great solution for this, but historically, you had to buy your own scaffolding and it was and still is expensive. However, you can now hire scaffolding in Wolverhampton for the day and this allows workers to stay safe on-site. Scaffolding offers many advantages and we will take a look at some of them here.
- Modern scaffolding is made from aluminium and so is super strong. But super light. It can be moved easily back and forward on a work site and it also comes on wheels for easy transport.
- The scaffolding can also be erected to suit any job, whether big or small and stairs and floors can be added to give workers a very safe place to work and move about.
- It can be easily anchored in place so that it doesn’t move in high winds and it allows many workers to be on the scaffolding at the same time.
Scaffolding is now available to rent, so there is no excuse not to keep yourself or your workers safe when doing their jobs.
