Things to follow while using an aluminum scaffold tower at work

Dos and don'ts of using aluminium scaffolding

Scaffold towers are helpful tools for working at height, but only if used properly. Using a ladder for hours on end is not only inconvenient but also dangerous. Therefore, they are perfect for occupations that demand working at height. Aluminium scaffolding may provide essential access to high places only if utilized safely and responsibly. The users and anybody around are in grave danger if they are not.

Don't Try to Hide Your Shortness Behind Other Things

Time spent climbing up and down ladders and scaffolding adds up quickly. We are keeping that in mind. It's easy to see why it might be tempting to utilize something handy, like a chair or a plastic box, to get a little additional height. We sympathize with your predicament, but it doesn't imply we approve of your actions. Even reliable access equipment, such as a solid stepladder, is not meant to be utilized on top of an access tower but rather on the ground. Using unplanned furniture like chairs or crates might put you in a dangerous situation. It's not worth the potential downside.

The use of a scaffold tower should be avoided when winds are high.

We're not implying that scaffold towers can't withstand high winds; this is a common design consideration. However, employ caution when the weather worsens since working at height is inherently dangerous when there is a high wind. Use extreme care, and put off your work if the wind picks up. The force of the wind alone might throw you off balance, and it could also bring pebbles, dust, and other tiny items hurtling at you at just the wrong time. Workplace fatalities due to falls from height have increased by over 30% in the previous five years.

Conclusion

Everyone looks for ways to save costs, but access equipment is one area where you should never skimp. You should never settle for a cheap product if you are trusting your life to it, which is why we previously discussed why you should always invest in a quality ladder in our blog.
