Industry guidelines ensure maximum safety in workplaces. Roof edge protection reduces hazards at height, like the risk of a fall. It acts as a safety rail preventing people (or objects) from falling over the edge of a building.

Wellington scaffolding should be 5m high above ground level.

When installing scaffolds in Wellington and all through NZ, workers must wear a harness wherever there is risk of a fall (ex . 2m from the ground). Take care to use a harness that has the correct length lanyard.

WHAT IS A HANGING SCAFFOLD?
A hanging scaffold is a working platform suspended by cables, cords, or chains. It is often referred to as a special duty scaffold.
WHAT IS A SCAFFOLD SAFETY TAG?
It’s a sign used to prevent accidents in potentially dangerous situations that may not be readily apparent.
New Zealand scaffolding companies follow the government’s policy on the safe design, use, and maintenance of scaffolding. In particular, companies use the joint Australian and New Zealand Standard 1576 series as the standard for working with scaffolding.
To ensure that the standards and guidelines are followed, after erecting or dismantling scaffolding, scaffold safety tags are used to indicate if a scaffold is safe to use. Tags like “incomplete scaffold” or “unsafe scaffold” should be placed in visible areas to ensure proper security in the workplace
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A SCAFFOLD BE INSPECTED?
Industry standards require that all scaffolds over five metres on site be inspected weekly by a certified scaffolder. Suspended scaffolds should be inspected daily by the operator. .
CAN I SET UP A LOW LEVEL SCAFFOLD ON MY OWN?
You can put up a scaffolding on your own property, but please note that you are also responsible for the safety of people who will come close to your scaffolding. You also cannot do anything that will cause public nuisance. For safety, please reach out to us for more information.
Are HARNESSes INSPECTED?
Yes. All fall arrest systems need to be inspected and tested periodically. Everything that workers use must be regularly tested, This includes all height safety equipment.
How far away from the working face can I have the scaffold?
The scaffold must be 300mm away from the wall without having to have guardrails in place. Check our wide range of Wellington scaffolding services to know more.
How do you ensure safety in using scaffolding?
We make sure that all scaffolds are built to NZ Scaffolding standards (and manufacturers specifications). We also do a weekly inspection of scaffold to ensure that the integrity of the scaffold is maintained. Scaffolds can move due to weather/earthquakes, or illegally tampered with by non-scaffolders. If the scaffold fails to comply with the inspection standards , the scaffold will be declared unsafe. The person inspecting will remove “scaffold safe” tag , and expose the “scaffold unsafe” tag . Alterations will be made and an inspection will commence afterwards to ensure the scaffold complies. If you are looking for a scaffolding hire in Wellington that offers topmost safety, give us a call.
