Scaffold Tower

Falls from heights are the biggest cause of death in the workplace. On average 45 people die and 3750 suffer major injuries every year. That's over 300 injuries reported each month.

Good to Go Safety provides essential safety checks for operatives prior to using a scaffolding tower, improving worker safety and avoiding costly accidents. The results of an inspection should be recorded and displayed. Carbon copies are retained in the check book and these records should be kept on site until construction is completed and then retained off site for a further three months.

Provides compliance with WAHR, PASMA & HSE legislation and best practice. A scaffold status tag should be attached to the tube at the tower’s point of entry to ensure maximum visibility. The tag has been designed to sit flush to a scaffold tube using cable ties to reduce the risk of snagging. Scaffold towers should meet the specification of BS EN 1004:2004 and the checks found in the Good to Go Safety check books can help to identify any non-conforming or poorly maintained tower.

All BS EN 1004:2004 towers should be supplied with detailed user instructions and critical safety information specifying the use of either the 3T or AGR system of assembly and dismantling. You must follow these instructions and the safety information precisely. Tower scaffolds come in many different shapes and sizes, but the Good to Go Safety checklist helps identify common pre-use checks to help maximise user safety at all times.
