Scorpion Scaffolding takes great pride in the reputation our scaffolding contractors have for safety. Regardless of the work we carry out in the Godalming area, from domestic or commercial scaffolding to temporary roof scaffolding, our team takes every possible measure to ensure their own safety as well as that of our clients, their property and the general public. As a scaffolding company with almost two decades of continuous trading, and with a team sharing more than 50 years of trade experience, we undertake scaffolding services with a range of demands in a variety of different environments. However, with our central ethos of maintaining safety at all times, we offer clients in Godalming the ultimate peace of mind.
Below, we’ve listed 4 of the most common measures we take as a scaffolding company to keep our domestic and commercial scaffolding not just efficient, but completely safe.
1. Training of Scaffolding Contractors
In our position as a locally-trusted scaffolding company serving Godalming, we ensure that our employees receive training in line with the latest Health & Safety guidelines. This includes full compliance with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Additionally, our scaffolding contractors have full knowledge of industry guidelines including SG4:15 and TG20:13. For the ultimate assurance, we hold accreditation from CHAS and CITB, two of the leading bodies in industry safety. When it comes to domestic and commercial scaffolding safety, we truly tick every box.
2. Site Surveys & Risk Assessments
Whether we’re assembling a simple access scaffold or expansive temporary roof scaffolding, our scaffolding contractors always undertake a comprehensive site survey and risk assessment at the proposed Godalming site. By doing this, we ensure that the projects we take on as a scaffolding company always get off on the right foot. Usually conducted by members of our personnel and the site manager, site surveys and risk assessments identify potential issues that could pose a threat to the safety of a site. By identifying these problems as early as possible, we all but eliminate the likelihood of delays to a Godalming project. A scaffolding company must carry out risk assessments by law.
3. Safety-Conscious Assembly
As a genuinely local scaffolding company, we pride ourselves on our safety record. We guarantee our clients in Godalming nothing less than lawful, safe support structures for any domestic or commercial scaffolding needs. From bird cages to temporary roof scaffolding, the materials used by our scaffolding contractors strictly adhere to the demands of current British Standards for scaffolding performance and design, including BS EN 12811-1. The bespoke scaffolds we design and assemble come equipped to handle the specific loads and demands of the Godalming project at hand, as well as withstanding the full range of weather conditions.
4. Regular Inspections
Perhaps the most important aspect of maintaining the safety of our domestic and commercial scaffolding services remains consistent inspections of our materials. As your chosen scaffolding company, whether we undertake a small-scale scaffold erection or the installation of large-scale temporary roof scaffolding, our clients in Godalming can rest assured that we continually exercise the same amount of professionalism. Our scaffolding contractors check our materials before and after assembly, every subsequent 7 days that the structure remains up and once again after dismantling. Should any adverse weather conditions strike, we also conduct thorough checks in their aftermath too.
