The Scaffolding Association has issued important guidance notes to help scaffolders with their risk management responsibilities during the COVID0-19 outbreak.
The guidance covers:
Statutory Inspection and looks at the responsibilities of contractors under the Work at Height (WAH) Regulations 2005 and the actions that need to be taken in order to meet with these duties. See the guidance notes here
Risk Considerations and the steps that contractors need to take to ensure compliance with health and safety regulations and their responsibility to ward employees and sub-contractors in respect of COVID-19. See the guidance here.
The guides provide a good insight into the requirements upon scaffolding contractors and a rationale for the proposed system of compliance.
