SUPPORTED SCAFFOLD INSPECTIONS

Assure that tools and materials are at least 3 meters away from energised power lines.

Check metal elements for bends, cracks, holes, rust, welding splatter, pits, broken welds, and non-compatible parts.

Check if power lines near scaffolds are de-energized or that the scaffolds are at least 3 meters away from energised power lines.

Confirm that the scaffold is the accurate type for the loads, materials, employees and weather conditions.

Check footings to see if they are level, sound, rigid, and able to support the loaded scaffold.

Check legs, posts, frames, and uprights to check if they are on baseplates and mudsills.

Check for safe entrance. Do not use the cross braces as a ladder for access or exit.

If the planks deflect 1 /60 of the span or 5 cm in a 3 meters wooden plank, the plank has been harmed and must not be used.

Look for guardrails and mid-rails on platforms where work is being performed.

Verify to see if the planks are close together, with spaces no more than 3 cm round uprights.

Check wooden planks for cuts, splits bigger than 1 /4 inch, end splits that are long, many large loose knots warps bigger than 1 /4 inch, boards and ends with gouges, mould, separated laminate(s), and grain sloping greater than 1 in 12 inches from the long edge and are scaffold grade wood or equivalent.

Check to see if the platform is 35 cm or less from the wall or 45 cm or less away if plastering/stucco.

Use braces, tie-ins and guying as defined by the scaffold’s producer at each end, vertically and horizontally to inhibit tipping.

Check to see if 10-foot or shorter planks are 15 to 30 cm over the centerline of the support, and that 3 meters or longer planks are no more than 45 cm over the end.

Check for operators under the platform and implement falling object protection or barricade the area. Assure that hard hats are used.
