An average of 1,000 serious injuries and 10 fatalities occur every year in the UK following accidents involving scaffolding. That's 19 major injuries every week.
Good To Go Safety helps employers meet their legal duties, through the use of an innovative scaffold tag and pre-use checklist system. The scaffold status can be instantly updated following any structural alterations, periods of bad weather, as part of its 7 day check or daily inspection programme. Using a scaffold checklist has never been easier and can reduce the risk of a costly scaffold collapse or accident.
Employers using scaffolding are regulated by the Work at Height Regulations (WAHR). Regular maintenance and scaffold inspections are vital to ensure that equipment remains safe and stable, especially after any adverse weather conditions.
Ensures compliance with PUWER, WAHR, CDM, NASC & HSE legislation and best practice. Simply attach a tag to the scaffold tube at point of entry to ensure maximum visibility; the tag has been designed to sit flush to the scaffold tube using cable ties to reduce the risk of snagging. Complete our scaffolding checklist which has been designed in line with BS EN 12811-1 and TG20:13 guidance and provides a chronological duplicate record of all inspections for your maintenance records as required under WAHR and PUWER.
Unless the necessary measures are in place and adhered to, any issue relating to the use or abuse of the scaffold will expose the employers utilising the scaffold to risk; either commercially (through financial claims or lost work), or through the courts. By inserting the completed checklist onto the tag it provides instant confirmation that an inspection has been completed and clearly displays the date and findings for all to see. A duplicate record of each completed checklist is also retained, providing invaluable evidence in the event of an accident involving the scaffolding.
