Scaffold Safety Guidelines - recommended by
Scaffolding, Shoring & Forming Institute
It shall be the responsibility of all employers and employees to read and
comply with the following common sense guidelines which are designed to promote
safety in the erecting and dismantling of scaffolds. These guidelines do not
purport to be all-inclusive nor to supplant or replace other additional safety
and precautionary measures to cover usual or unusual conditions. Local, State or
Federal statute or regulations shall supersede these guidelines if there is a
conflict and it is the responsibility of each employee to comply. GENERAL
I. POST THESE SCAFFOLDING SAFETY GUIDELINES in a conspicuous place and be sure
that all persons who erect, dismantle or use scaffolding are aware of them.
II. FOLLOW ALL STATE, LOCAL AND FEDERAL CODES, ORDINANCES AND REGULATIONS
pertaining to scaffolding because they may be more restrictive. For example,
height or width requirements may vary.
III. SURVEY THE JOB SITE—A survey shall be made of the job site for hazards,
such as untampered earth fills, ditches, debris, high tension wires, unguarded
openings, and other hazardous conditions created by other trades. These
conditions shall be corrected or avoided as noted in the following sections.
IV. INSPECT ALL EQUIPMENT BEFORE USING—Never use any equipment that is damaged
or defective in any way.
V. KEEP ALL EQUIPMENT IN GOOD REPAIR—Avoid using corroded equipment—the strength
of corroded equipment is not known.
VI. INSPECT ERECTED SCAFFOLDS DAILY—or at the beginning of every shift to be
sure that they are maintained in safe condition.
VII. NEVER USE EQUIPMENT FOR PURPOSES OR IN WAYS FOR WHICH IT WAS NOT INTENDED.
VIII. REPORT ANY UNSAFE CONDITION. NEVER TAKE CHANCES—Do not work on scaffolds
if your physical condition is such that you feel dizzy or unsteady in any way.
IX. WORKING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR ILLEGAL DRUGS IS STRICTLY
X. CONSULT YOUR SCAFFOLDING SUPPLIER—NEVER TAKE CHANCES—Consult manuals and
instructions provided by the supplier; scaffolding is his business.
GUIDELINES FOR ERECTION AND USE OF
A.PROVIDE ADEQUATE SILLS for scaffold posts and use base plates.
B. USE ADJUSTING SCREWS or other approved conditions.
C. PLUMB AND LEVEL ALL SCAFFOLDS as the erection proceeds. Do not force braces
to fit—level the scaffold until proper fit can be made easily.
D. BRACING. Each frame or panel shall be braced by horizontal bracing, cross
bracing, diagonal bracing or any combination thereof for securing vertical
members together laterally. All brace connections shall be made secure, in
accordance with manufacturers’ recommendations.
E. DO NOT CLIMB CROSS BRACES. Use only an access (climbing) ladder, access
steps, frame designed to be climbed or equivalent safe access to scaffold.
F. TIE RUNNING SCAFFOLD TO WALL or structure when the height exceeds* four (4)
times the minimum scaffold base dimension. The first vertical and longitudinal
tie shall be placed at this point. Vertical ties shall be repeated at intervals
not greater than 26 feet. Longitudinal ties shall be placed at each end and at
intervals not greater than 30 feet. Ties must prevent the scaffold from tipping
into or away from the wall or structure.
G. WHEN SCAFFOLDS ARE TO BE PARTIALLY OR FULLY ENCLOSED, specific precautions
must be taken to assure frequency and adequacy of ties attaching the scaffolding
to the building due to increased load conditions resulting from effects of wind
and weather. The scaffolding components to which the ties are attached must also
be checked for additional loads.
H. WHEN FREE STANDING SCAFFOLD TOWERS exceed* four times their minimum base
dimension vertically, they must be restrained from tipping.
I. DO NOT ERECT SCAFFOLDS NEAR ELECTRICAL POWER LINES UNLESS PROPER PRECAUTIONS
ARE TAKEN. Consult the power service company for advice.
J. DO NOT USE ladders or makeshift devices on top of scaffolds to increase the
K. DO NOT EXCEED MANUFACTURERS’ RECOMMENDED LOAD RATING.
L. EQUIP AND MAINTAIN ALL PLATFORMS with proper guardrails, midrails, and
toeboards along all open sides and ends of scaffold platforms.
M. ALL BRACKETS shall be seated correctly with side brackets parallel to the
frames and end brackets at 90 degrees to the frames. Brackets shall not be bent
or twisted from normal position. Brackets (except mobile brackets designed to
carry materials) are to be used as work platforms only and shall not be used for
storage of material or equipment. When brackets are used, the scaffold shall be
tied to the structure or otherwise restrained to prevent tipping.
N. ALL SCAFFOLDING ACCESSORIES shall be used and installed in accordance with
the manufacturers’ recommended procedure. Accessories shall not be altered in
the field. Scaffolds, frames and their components of various manufacturers shall
not be intermixed.
O.FOR PLANKING, THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES APPLY: 1. Use only lumber that is
properly inspected and graded as scaffold plank. 2. Planking shall have at least
12 inches of overlap and extend 6 inches beyond center of support, or, be
cleated at both ends to prevent sliding off supports. 3. Fabricated scaffold
planks and platforms, unless created or restrained by hooks, shall extend over
their end supports not less than 6 inches nor more than 12 inches. 4. Secure
plank to scaffold when necessary.
P. FOR ROLLING SCAFFOLDS THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES APPLY. 1. CASTERS
WITH PLAIN STEMS shall be attached to the panel or adjustment screw by pins or
other suitable means. 2. DO NOT EXTEND ADJUSTING SCREWS ON ROLLING SCAFFOLDS
MORE THAN 12 INCHES. 3. WHEELS OR CASTERS shall be provided with a locking
device and kept locked during erection and dismantling or any time scaffolds are
not being moved. 4. SECURE OR REMOVE ALL MATERIAL AND EQUIPMENT from platform
before moving scaffold. 5. USE HORIZONTAL DIAGONAL BRACING near the bottom and
at 20 foot intervals measured from the rolling surface. 6. DO NOT USE brackets
or other platform extensions without consideration of overturning effect. 7. THE
HEIGHT OF A ROLLING SCAFFOLD excluding its uppermost guardrails, must not
exceed* four times its smallest base dimension unless it is stabilized by an
engineered counterweight system or some other equivalent means. 8. CLEAT OR
SECURE ALL PLANKS. 9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOVE A ROLLING SCAFFOLD WITHOUT
SUFFICIENT HELP—watch out for holes in floor and overhead obstructions—stabilize
against tipping. 10. DO NOT RIDE ROLLING SCAFFOLDS. 11. JOINTS shall be
restrained from separation.
Q. FOR “PUTLOGS” AND “TRUSSES” the following additional guidelines apply. 1. DO
NOT CANTILEVER OR EXTEND PUTLOGS/TRUSSES as side brackets without thorough
consideration for loads to be applied. 2. PUTLOGS/TRUSSES SHOULD BE EXTENDED AT
LEAST 6 inches beyond point of support. 3. PLACE RECOMMENDED BRACING BETWEEN
PUTLOGS/TRUSSES when the span of putlog/truss is more than 12 feet.
R. WHEN DISMANTLING SCAFFOLDING THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES APPLY: 1.
CHECK TO SEE IF SCAFFOLDING HAS BEEN STRUCTURALLY ALTERED in any way which would
make it unsafe, and if so, reconstruct where necessary before commencing with
dismantling procedures. 2. VISUALLY INSPECT PLANK prior to dismantling to be
sure that they are safe to work on. 3. COMPONENTS SHOULD BE LOWERED as soon as
dismantled in safe manner so as to protect personnel below. 4. DO NOT ACCUMULATE
EXCESS COMPONENTS OR EQUIPMENT on the level being dismantled. 5. DISMANTLED
EQUIPMENT should be stockpiled in an orderly manner.
S. FOLLOW ERECTION PROCEDURES AND USE MANUALS.
