Scaffolding operations entail many complex but mandatory safety processes that have contributed to losses in kind and cash if not followed accurately. One of the most common losses observed, is in relation to material losses involved in the erection and dismantling operations of scaffolds.
Most of the leading contractors (heavy infrastructure and engineering) have large areas covered in a single project. Such an operation might require multiple scaffolding sites. Most of these operations entail paper driven systems that take a whole lot of time and are cumbersome. Sometimes it becomes extremely difficult for authorities to accurately track the existence (or non-existence) of scaffolds. Often scaffolds are dismantled only to know that a similar one was required at that very same spot. This may result in huge operational losses for the organization.
