If your business involves building maintenance or construction, scaffolding equipment is a necessary purchase. Scaffolding equipment protects workers from falls and gives them access to areas that might otherwise be out of reach. There are two main types of scaffolding used in building maintenance and construction projects. A supported scaffold includes a rigid support structure holding up one or more flat platforms. A suspended scaffold is a flat platform that hangs down on a rope or cable from a structure on the top of the building.
You can purchase new or used scaffolding equipment from local or international manufacturers or distributors. Companies that sell scaffolding equipment include Industrial Ladder and Supply, New England Scaffolding, and Waco Scaffolding & Equipment Company. For short-term projects, you can rent scaffolding equipment instead of buying it. Many manufacturers and distributors of scaffolding equipment also have a rental department.
Before using scaffolding equipment, businesses are typically required to obtain permits from the city, county or municipality where they will be using the equipment. Workers who install and use scaffolding equipment must follow all OSHA safety regulations, such as wearing approved hard hats and other safety equipment. If your workers fail to follow these OSHA regulations, you as the business owner can be held responsible.
