As a contractor, sub-contractor or labourer, working on a building site can be quite hazardous. All reasonable steps are taken to ensure your safety on the job and your employer should have your best interests at heart. There are times when you are expected to work at significant heights and in hard to reach places and trying to use a ladder to do this is just not practical as well as outright dangerous.
Thankfully, there is something that can keep you and your colleagues much safer on the job and it is known as scaffolding. Some of the best scaffolding services in Hertford provides many types of scaffolding and they deliver it, set it up and then when you are finished, they will come out and pick it up again. Scaffolding offers a number of safety features that ladders, for example, do not and here are just some of them.
- Scaffolding now comes in lightweight aluminium and is so easy to pick up and set up. Even though it is light weight, it is incredibly strong and when assembled correctly, it can support multiple workers. It can be transported on a smaller vehicle due to it being lighter and can be disassembled and reassembled so quickly as well.
- A scaffolding frame allows multiple workers to do their jobs all at the same time. This saves time and money because a job can be completed in a shorter time because the workers are able to work alongside each other completing their part of their job as they go.
