TagSafe prioritises scaffold safety because we understand the serious risks that can result from unsafe scaffolding practises. A fall from a scaffold can result in serious injuries or even death, which is why every precaution must be taken to ensure worker safety. We inspect and test scaffolds on a regular basis to ensure that they are in good condition and can support the weight of workers and materials. By emphasising scaffold safety, we hope to create a safe and healthy working environment for all construction and maintenance workers.
SMART Inspector makes scheduling, conducting, and reporting on scaffold inspections simple and efficient. It has been specifically designed to meet our client and contractor’s needs and meet current legislation.
All inspection reports provide detailed information regarding remedial works required within an appropriate timescale, complete with photographs.
“In recent years the number of fatal injuries to construction workers in the UK has thankfully remained relatively low, yet the rate of fatal injuries in construction is still 4 times higher than the average across all industries. Scaffold inspections are a vital part of keeping workers safe.”
TAGSAFE LTD is an independent scaffold inspection service that inspects, records, and reports. Scaffolds are inspected to ensure they are built in accordance with legislation TG20:21.
It is essential to have scaffold tested before use to ensure its safety and stability. Inspections assist in identifying any weaknesses or deficiencies in the scaffold structure that may pose a risk to workers, thereby preventing accidents and injuries.
Scaffolds should typically be inspected and tested before use, after any modifications or repairs, and after any significant weather conditions.
Inspections can reveal a variety of scaffold flaws, such as insufficient load capacity, missing or damaged parts, incorrect assembly, poor stability, and insufficient anchoring or tie-off points.
Scaffold inspections can assist employees by checking that the scaffold is safe and sturdy, lowering the risk of accidents and injuries. This can assist improve satisfaction among workers, reduce absence due to accident, and improve jobsite productivity.
It is a legal requirement for scaffold to be examined and tested before use and on a regular basis while in use. Noncompliance with the regulations may result in fines, legal liabilities, and an increased risk of accidents and injuries.
TAGSAFE LTD’s goal is to make the scaffold a safer place for contractors to work by ensuring that thorough inspections are performed every 7 days by scaffold inspectors who are entirely dedicated to scaffold inspections.
