How often does a scaffold have to be inspected?
We recommend that your scaffolding be inspected at least once a week to ensure its safety and security. It’s prudent to also inspect a platform before each use and after significant alterations.
Scaffolding should regularly be checked to confirm its structural integrity and safety. Regular inspections of scaffolding ensures that it is safe for use and doesn’t pose a danger to anyone. Inspections are especially necessary if the scaffolding has been moved or altered in any way. It is also ideal to have it inspected if it has been exposed to heavy rain, wind, snow or other adverse weather conditions.
