At Rochester Scaffolding Ltd, we understand the importance of health and safety for scaffolding companies and clients, meeting strict safety standards in all areas of our own scaffolding services. From ensuring scaffolding contractors turn up to your site in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), to organising safety training refreshers for our scaffolding erectors, we take every step to guarantee the safety of our team, customers and the Canterbury public.
Formed in 2013, we are members of industry-leading accreditations CHAS, Constructionline and Scaffolding Association. As members, our team uphold the high standards of health and safety set by these organisations and our scaffolding erectors have exclusive access to the latest training and safety practices. We take pride in being one of the leading scaffolding companies in the Canterbury area and strive to continuously minimise risk throughout our scaffolding services.
Scaffolding companies have a responsibility to provide scaffolding contractors with the adequate resources, training, supervision and equipment. At Rochester Scaffolding Ltd we are no different. As CISRS and CITB trained scaffolding erectors, our team is knowledgeable in all types of scaffolding, current codes of practice and is equipped with the relevant tools. We work closely with training and safety schemes such as CHAS, to keep up to date with the latest in Health & Safety awareness, first aid training, fire safety, working at heights and SG4.15 & TG20.13 scaffolding regulations.
When carrying out scaffolding services in Canterbury and the surrounding Kent areas, our scaffolding contractors follow strict health and safety policies which include steps such as the following.
To wear Personal Protective Equipment
We supply full PPE to scaffolding erectors who are required to wear equipment such as safety boots, hard hats, safety goggles, gloves, HI-visibility vests and safety harnesses, where applicable.
To maintain a safe working environment
As one of the primary scaffolding companies in the Canterbury area, our team are expected to maintain a safe working environment when carrying out scaffolding services, such as keeping scaffolding structures clear of trip hazards.
To take care to avoid injury to themselves and others
When erecting and dismantling scaffolding, scaffolding contractors should take reasonable care to avoid injury to themselves and to others, by handling and transporting materials, systems and equipment safely.
To check for and report hazards
Scaffolding erectors should be aware at all times of potential hazards in the workplace and should remove or speak out about a hazard if one is spotted. This helps to prevent injury as scaffolding services are being performed.
To ensure scaffolding structures are compliant
Scaffolding companies such as Rochester Scaffolding Ltd, use high-quality materials for supplying and erecting scaffolding that is strong and stable. Scaffolding erectors also have a responsibility of erecting structures are compliant with TG20.13 safety standards.
