What a scaffold safety inspection checklist should entail


Scaffolding is an important aspect of the construction industry. For this reason Construction projects require substantial and thorough safety plans and regular checks. These inspections help to manage and control possible hazards and risks. The following are a few essential HSE inspired guidelines from 2005 which are helpful during your inspection:


  • A Scaffold inspection must be carried out every 7 days.
  • Scaffolds are to be inspected before their usage utilizing an initial inspection report or a certificate when handing it out.
  • Scaffolds are be inspected after an event which might possibly affect the safety of the structure (for example: earth quakes, severe weather conditions, any alterations.)
  • The jnspector is to prepare a report before the end of his/her working period. This report is to be shared with the client or employer within 24 hours. Also such reports must be kept available to print and reproduce at any time.
  • Inspection reports should be kept on site until the construction work is fully finished.
