Mobile Scaffolding Inspection Checklist Template

This mobile scaffold inspection checklist can be used by contractors or scaffolders to perform a basic inspection to look for common scaffold deficiencies and hazards.

Contractors have a duty to provide and maintain a safe working environment free from health and safety hazards as far as is reasonably practicable. This includes, but is not limited to, providing safe mobile scaffolds for indoor and outdoor work.

It is precisely because of their mobility that mobile scaffolds are susceptible to damage and should therefore be maintained on a regular basis. To prevent accidents, carry out a scaffold inspection before each use and check whether workers are familiar with the handling of mobile scaffolds and towers.
