Frequently asked questions

  • How often should a scaffold be inspected?
    How often should a scaffold be inspected?
    • Upon handover
    • Before first use
    • At intervals not exceeding 7 days
    • After any event that may jeopardise strength or stability of the scaffold (adverse weather, unauthorised access, collision, new excavations or a change in ground conditions etc.)
    • After any alterations/modifications
  • Who is authorised to inspect a scaffold?
    • A trained and competent person; usually competence is proven by a person attending a CISRS Basic inspection or advanced inspection course.
    • Any scaffolder who has refreshed their card (2 day CPD) will now be permitted to inspect any scaffold structure that is within their competence.
    • So, a part two (basic scaffolder – blue CISRS card) can inspect TG20 compliant (basic structures) and an advanced scaffolder (gold card) can inspect bespoke scaffolds and advanced structures.
  • How long can scaffolding be left up?

    It is all based on a risk assessment. The period that a scaffold remains in a safe condition is dependent on many factors (e.g. the environment, location, exposure, external influences, abuse, duration and frequency of use).

    Due to the temporary nature of all scaffolding  structures, there comes a time when the integrity of all its components (due to corrosion and other types of deterioration) cannot be guaranteed.

    A decision should then be made to fully assess and possibly renovate or dismantle the structure, and re-erect with serviceable and recently inspected tubes, fittings and boards etc. (NASC SG41.20).
