INTRODUCTION

This is a completed project on scaffolding it entails safety precautions, how to assemble and disassemble scaffolds, it also has advantages of using scaffolds over other types of equipment and has a drawn scaffold.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• Ensure that there is no building refuse falling or collecting on the Scaffold. Immediately clean the refuse.
• When climbing onto or descending the Scaffold only the delivered material for this activity must be used. Never improvise or deviate using other materials or methods. Always climb the scaffold from the inner side of the scaffold. • Do not use the Scaffold in unsafe conditions such as extreme weather conditions. Unattended scaffolds must be secured so they are resistant against wind strength greater than 6 beaufort. • Never modify the Scaffold or its components in any way.

• Never exceed a maximum weight of 225kg on the scaffold.
• Never exceed safe maximum top working height and safe maximum length. • Before starting the activities the users of the Scaffold must possess all the knowledge on the safe functioning of the Scaffold.

• Before usage of the Scaffold check all the applications function, in case of doubt never take risks and always contact an expert. • Always check the Scaffold for obstacles prior to use, do not take any risks and remove the obstacles or let them be removed.

ERECTION PROCEDURE

1. When erecting the scaffold you should always erect in a continuous sequence starting from the corner of a structure or the highest ground level point. The ground should be compacted to with stand the load of the scaffold and adequate sole boards should be used. 2. SETTING THE BASE. Adjust 4 base jacks to the same approximate height. 3. Place 2 standards on each of the first 2 jacks. One person should hold the 2 standards while the other person can fit the required...
