As an integral part of any building or construction job, scaffolds have been used since the early times so that construction workers are able to complete their jobs safely and efficiently.
Modern construction, however, dictates certain safety measures for scaffolding erection. Legal stipulations set by OH&S WorkCover are to be complied, covering all Australian territories, including scaffolding Townsville installation.

Everyone on the site must be educated about the safety and hazards of scaffolding use.
It may be tempting to set up the scaffolding on your own. You might want to save money instead of hiring a professional particularly if the construction job is simple. However, there are certain drawbacks to a do-it-yourself process.
For instance, when it comes to safety issues, you won’t have the same assurance as in knowing that your scaffolds are set up by a well-trained and knowledgeable professional who complies with strict requirements.
With bigger industrial and construction sites, on the other hand, licenced scaffolders are actually mandatory.
