Scaffolding is an important part of most building projects, but especially those where the buildings are above the reach of employees. Skyscrapers and even buildings with one storey could not be built without some kind of scaffolding in place to enable workers to access the work areas. Even many home projects need some kind of scaffolding, be it ever so simple.
No matter what kind of project it is for, if scaffolding is needed at all, it should be strong and sturdy, otherwise you risk nasty accidents happening to employees or to yourself if you are doing a renovation job on your home. There are several parts to scaffolding and all need to be strong.
- The framework is what holds up the walkways and gives the entire structure stability and strength to cope with the loads it must bear.
- The flooring should be strong as this also bears the weight of workers and other loads such as a wheelbarrow full of cement and other building materials.
