Scaffolders are responsible to install, dismantle and maintain scaffolding equipment. As per 74 (1) of the Regulations (Building Operations and Works of Engineering Construction) (Safety) Regulations, Factories and Machinery Act, 1986 stipulates that all the work including installing, dismantling and maintaining of the scaffold should be carried out under the supervision of the ‘designated person’ or competent person appointed by the employer to supervise or inspect the work carried out.
Scaffolding, also called scaffold or staging, is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and all other man-made structures.
Scaffolds fulfil a diverse set of requirements:
– creation of safe and productive working areas
– providing access to working areas at higher levels
– set up area and/or point loads
