As Britain prepares for Brexit, many in the construction and scaffolding industry are seeking guidance on how they will be affected. Although many questions remain unanswered, Gilray Plant has brought together what we know so far on what the impact of Brexit may be on the scaffolding industry.
Health and safety is paramount in construction and scaffold erectors have a duty to provide a safe place for their employees to work. With this in mind, it’s imperative that scaffolding is checked regularly to ensure that it meets the required safety standards. So, how often should scaffolding be inspected?
Back when PPE just meant hard hats, goggles or ear defenders, site safety for scaffolders was a serious but simple matter.

But with the right knowledge and preparation, it’s possible to create a safe working environment for your team.
