Major Causes of Scaffolding Accidents

Let’s face it, although the world is continuously advancing and getting hi-tech but still accidental fatalities in the construction industry are on rise. Every year thousands of workers suffer from fatal injuries on the job.

According to an internal research, some 4,500 workers are injured every year in scaffolding falls. About 50 of those injuries result in death. One out of every ten work-related deaths is caused by a fall.



Scaffolding Management System is no more an Unskilled Job

Scaffolding is a term mainly used in the construction or heavy infrastructure industry.

Scaffold is a temporary means of support required whenever working at height. It is a framework wherein a worker may position himself, place tools and materials and perform the job. Scaffolds are mainly required during operation, maintenance, servicing and on many other occasions. Structural support in the form of a stable and strong scaffold is a necessity during project execution, right from the time of excavation, foundation laying, erection of structures, equipment installation etc. .

Measure Productivity of your Scaffolding Operations

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 major challenge faced by authorities is that of identifying whether resources (both man & material) are being used efficiently.

Owing to its complex nature of operations, authorities face a huge challenge of monitoring and measuring activities at multiple scaffolding sites in a single project. It becomes difficult to have a physical presence at each working site within a given area / location just to monitor activity. Owing to this, it is difficult to identify whether the teams that have been allocated to a particular project are working as expected. Similarly, it becomes extremely difficult to monitor material used in a single scaffolding site.
