Scaffolding Association issues Scaffold Industry Guidance Notes
The Scaffolding Association has launched two Scaffold Industry Guidance Notes (SIGNS) which address the requirements for scaffolding inspection during COVID-19.
Stacey Underhill, Head of External Affairs, said: “We have had a large volume of enquiries from contractors and clients asking for clarification on scaffold inspections during COVID-19, particularly where sites are ceasing to operate.
These documents will clarify those requirements and offer up some of the risks that you should be considering when sending people to site to undertake those inspections.”
The documents are free to download from the Scaffolding Association website.
