Scaffold Erector

Scaffold Erector
Scaffolding workers erect scaffolding, erecting scaffolding, and dismantling, storing, scaffolding and demonstrating knowledge of scaffolds and scaffold components. They are required to work at height and consequently are constantly at risk of a fall liable causing personal injury. The working at height regulations apply to scaffolding work. It’s one of the most risky areas on any site. Being exposed to such high risk means that appropriate safety training is supreme to assist in preventing accidents.
