A building site with scaffolds is regarded as a hazardous area where a lot of different and dangerous tools and equipment are used. Various sections of a construction site will draw its own risks depending on what is in the vicinity. Many regard scaffolding as a reasonably dangerous place to work on due to the greater consequences of falling from a higher place and statistics show the number of scaffolding accidents are increasing.
The Health and Safety Executive acknowledges the perils increased by the use of scaffolding and have in response implemented legal restrictions in their use. A full list can be obtained from their website. One of the things it does highlight is that only certain people can erect, use and dismantle scaffolding. Anyone in breach of this may be responsible for any accidents, whether fatal or minor.
Although many employers are following the legislations in place for scaffolding, it is claimed that there are still people who do get injured on scaffolding because of some form of negligence. Often it is the failure to appoint an authorised person to erect the scaffolding, or an omission of safety checks.
