Scaffold specification checklist

Scaffold specification checklist

If you need a scaffold, the HSE suggests that you should provide a specification. Use our form to do this. What’s covered?

Industry standard

If you need to work at height for prolonged periods, a fixed scaffold is often necessary. If you follow the HSE’s guidance, the process isn’t as simple as picking up the phone to your local scaffolder. It suggests that at the start of the planning process you provide them with detailed information about your site and your requirements.

What information?

The HSE’s scaffold checklist sets out what information should be passed on. We have put the points it has identified into more user friendly language and created a new Scaffold Specification Checklist. This document can be used to comply with the HSE’s guidance. Plus, it can help you to get the scaffold you need rather than what the scaffolder thinks you should have.

How is it set out?

The first part of the document contains space for you to provide details about your site. Next, there are a number of points for you to address. This information will make it clear to the scaffold firm exactly what you’re looking for. The form also asks you to provide details of the premises the scaffold is to be built around and the ground conditions. There is space for you to include photographs. These can be used by the scaffolder to work out exactly what is to be built and how.
