SAFE ACCESS TO SCAFFOLDS (BEST PRACTICE)





Erecting ladders in scaffolds, especially in high rise building construction requires good engineering methods in selection and method of erection. 

Portable ladders are used as a means of egress and access and at the same time presents risks of slips, trips and falls from height due to various human errors. Take note also that light materials cannot be moved up or brought down in portable ladders and is not suitable for particularly at the time of emergencies when more than one person may need to be evacuated.
Considering the above photo, scaffolds with erected step ladders are shown for the improvement of everyone's project at site. Use of step ladders significantly reduces the risks and improves the safety of our workers at site as well.


Please share this method to all contractors constructing high rise buildings and consider this as benefit.
