Rules and Regulations

Scaffolding is often required when it comes to working at height in residential settings. It‘s important to know the regulations that apply to its use. Contrary to popular belief, ladders and stepladders are not always banned from use. Under certain lowrisk scenarios, these can be an appropriate solution. It is just a matter of being sensible and making the right decision.

When do you need Scaffolding for Houses?

It’s up to you when you assess the level of risk and what appropriate equipment will be needed for the job. Fixing a single broken tile on a low roof would not be the same as installing solar panels 20 stories up on a High-Rise Flat. It all depends on the work that you’re doing and the level of risk it involves.

Workers do need to ensure their staff are safe as they work on the property, which means working from the ground if possible. If workers need to work at height, they must minimise the risk of falling by using existing safe roof areas or scaffolding.

What will I need?

Most scaffolding structures around housing properties will follow an established, standard structure. Supported scaffold is built from the base upwards to a set design. However, if it isn’t possible – a scaffold designer must create a bespoke scaffolding structure to ensure it holds the strength and stability of all its workers.

Who is Responsible for Health and Safety on a Scaffold Site?

Rules and Regulations are different for individuals or companies that have construction work being carried out. This includes property developers and companies managing domestic properties like Landlords, rental agents and estate agents.


Scaffolding Insurance

Scaffolders face a unique set of risks due to working at height. Builders or scaffolding firms need insurance that covers those risks, including public liability insurance to cover any injury to the public caused by falling items from the scaffold as well as employers’ liability insurance to cover their people if they are injured while working at height. It is worth checking that they have this insurance in place, before starting work.
