Health & Safety

Safety is the by far the most important aspect of every scaffold hire project we undertake. SKN Scaffolding Ltd pride itself in having an excellent safety record, and from the top level down, we are firmly committed to maintaining our excellent safety record.

 We work closely with our operatives to make sure they are aware of new industry standards, which enables them to work safely and confidently on site.

Full PPE is supplied and worn at all relevant times

Avoidance of power lines

British Standards equipment

Careful incorporation of ladders and lifts

All necessary tie-offs and supports

Weekly checks on the structure

We ensure that each operative is given the opportunity to achieve new qualifications through CITB/CISRS training.

Our team carry out a full survey before starting planning or erection to find workarounds for any potential problems like power lines and level, firm foundations.

We take into account essential concerns such as ladders, load weights and supports throughout the design and ensure that our erection teams are fully conversant with the latest health and safety legislation so that good practice and compliance can be attended to throughout the build.

We ensure there is full compliance with all relevant Health and Safety directives and enforce these at all times including design and competence issues, the supervision of scaffolders, and inspections by appropriately qualified staff. SKN Scaffolding Ltd works to TG20:13. On site, We work along side a lot of health and safety organisations such as Chas,citb and construction line keeping health and safety our main priority.
