Scaff Step survey for the SCCR


    The SCCR are putting a report together on the use of scaff steps and we need your input.

    1. Does your employer or their customers insist on the scaff step being the only method used on their sites?

    2. What other methods of advanced guard rails do you or your company use and what is your opinion on them?

    3. If you use a scaff step what type is it, does it sit on the guard rail or on the standard, does it have a ladder to the platform or not?

    4. If you use a scaff step do you feel safe using it, do you hemp while standing on the step?

    5. Do you think that the scaff step causes extra strain and fatigue to the body?

    6. Are you happy with hemping over the guard rail, do you consider this dangerous.
