Fixed Scaffolding Inspections Checklist
The Good to Go Safety Check Book is an innovative tool for workplace equipment. It allows workers to carry out pre-use checks and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. These safety checklists are designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
“All scaffolding should display a “DO NOT USE” notice for restricting access to the scaffold until it has been inspected and handover completed. A tag inspection system (if used) shall be completed and located at the access point of the scaffold. Regular statutory inspections of the scaffolding shall take place at least every 7 days or after any event likely to have affected the scaffold’s stability. The tag system insert will also be updated to record the inspection”. Ref: NASC (National Access & Scaffolding Confederation)
Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to components and structural checks to be completed before the scaffold is used. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed checklists are retained in the book for management records. The book also includes useful guidance notes to remind operatives what to look for during their inspection of system scaffolding and/or tube and fitting scaffolding in line with TG20:13 guidance.
