Scaffolding – a long history
Evidence exists that the need for scaffolding dates back to prehistoric times. The use of some form of scaffolding has evolved over the centuries until we have the sophisticated systems that are available today. Everything changed in the early 20th century when Daniel Palmer Jones invented a ‘Universal Coupler’ that would hold the newly developed metal scaffolding poles together.
Today scaffolding is used everywhere where access to high places is required. Strict Health and Safety measures have to be observed when working at height. To ensure the safety of the workforce and the site it is essential that you use a fully qualified team of Construction Industry Training Board trained staff to undertake the work.

Scaffolding alarms are now becoming a must have item in preventing crime to buildings undergoing maintenance.
Scaffolding provides an ideal route for intruders into a property that would not normally exist and therefore it is essential to install the necessary precautions to prevent this. 24/7 monitored alarms are an ideal solution for void properties and construction sites where nobody is there on evenings and weekends.
It is also worth noting that if your property is undergoing maintenance and scaffolding is required you must inform your insurance provider. Your claim can be void if the insurance provider covering the house and contents is unaware of the start date and duration of the scaffolding work.

Staying safe at height
Working at height presents its own unique problems, one of which is carrying tools and equipment safely while moving about the scaffold.
A new rucksack has been developed by the people at www.toolarrest.co.uk which seeks to overcome the potential hazards which occur when tools and equipment are accidentally dropped from height. The rucksack has been designed specifically to address these issues and incorporates several innovative features to ensure tools stay safe and secure, which will help workers on North London Scaffolding and other workers at height.
