Safety Rules

Safety Rules & Regulations

Following are some common sense rules designed to promote safety in the use of steel scaffolding.  These rules are illustrative and suggestive only, and are intended to deal only with some of the many practices and conditions encountered in the use of scaffolding.  The rules do not purport to be all-inclusive or to supplant or replace other additional safety and precautionary measures to cover usual or unusual conditions.  They are not intended to conflict with, or supersede, any state, local, federal regulations.  All of our customers should read and follow related regulations and suggestions before they start using scaffolds. 

A.      IN ANY CONDITIONS, PLEASE use base plates or SCREW JACKS.

B.      USE ADJUSTING SCREW JACKS instead of blocks to adjust UNEVEN FLOOR CONDITIONS.
