Keeping Safe

Health & Safety

Health & Safety

Complex Scaffolding is a Luton-based firm that has over 25 years of scaffolding hire experience. In that time, we’ve maintained an excellent safety record. We put this down to our stringent Health and Safety approach. Scaffolding companies like ours are governed by industry guidelines which tell us the best way to operate. We adhere to each measure carefully for the welfare of our valued clients.

Here, we explain the safety-focused approach of our scaffolding erectors in more detail. Our outlook has seen us win contracts with some of the North London’s top construction companies, as well as our many satisfied domestic clients in the area.

Looking Ahead

Before any of our scaffolding erectors leave the yard, they make sure that all necessary scaffolding hire equipment is loaded onto the truck. As other scaffolding companies in North London have found out to their cost, turning up onsite without the correct poles and clips is unprofessional and potentially unsafe. Poor planning can put fellow scaffolding erectors or contractors at risk if the tower has started to go up but there’s not enough equipment to complete the job safely.

Site Preparation

Before we start to put scaffolding hire equipment together, we make sure the ground is able to take the weight of the tower. If we feel that the surface is too wet, or the weather could cause scaffolding safety to be an issue, we will take the correct steps to ensure safety at all times by working around those issues accordingly.

Safety First

When working on site, safety comes first and this is always a number one priority in our book. Scaffolding companies should always take this approach but with Complex, safety is guaranteed. We know that a safe construction protects everyone, from our own scaffolding erectors to the contractors who will be working on it.

Safe Equipment

Items like boards make a scaffolding tower safe and easy to use. Tightly-fitted battens are essential so that nothing can be dropped onto a lower level to cause potential harm or damage. If we do find boards that are damaged or starting to show signs of wear on a project, we throw them out immediately for recycling.

Final Checks

We always inspect the scaffolding hire construction before use. All scaffolding companies should take these steps and we believe that it’s of the highest importance that our scaffolding erectors carry out a complete safety inspection before signing off the job. All tubes, pins, boards, poles and clasps are inspected before we load the truck in advance of a job. We work closely with site or project managers to make sure they’re completely satisfied with our scaffolding before moving on to the next job.
