A video has emerged showing how scaffolders were being trained in 1969.

British pathe has published a very interesting snapshot video of scaffolders being trained at the old CITB scaffold training center in Mitchem, London. Well before harnesses and the conception of SG4 & TG20, the video profoundly highlights how far our great industry has progressed to become a world leader in scaffolding training and safety.

The video also shows Big Ben and parts of Westminster covered in scaffolding.

Old school scaffolders, we salut you.

  1. Excellent video! Family been in scaffolding since 1950s and still are, may be some of them in video! Thankfully H&S have changed things but have to say they all seem to look back and really feel this truly was the “good old days”. As you say all credit to to the ‘old boys’ – See more at: https://scaffmag.com/2015/11/video-scaffolding-training-in-1969/
