Scaffolding Trade Body Issues COVID-19 Industry Guidance Notes

Scaffolding Association Issues Emergency Industry Guidance Notes on Scaffolding Inspections

The Scaffolding Association has launched two Scaffold Industry Guidance Notes (SIGNS) which address the requirements for scaffolding inspection during COVID-19.

In light of ongoing Coronavirus crisis, the Scaffolding Association has published two documents of guidance for its members and the wider industry. It’s concentrated its advice on scaffold inspections and risk considerations during the current situation.

Stacey Underhill, Head of External Affairs, said: “We have had a large volume of enquiries from contractors and clients asking for clarification on scaffold inspections during COVID-19, particularly where sites are ceasing to operate.

These documents will clarify those requirements and offer up some of the risks that you should be considering when sending people to site to undertake those inspections.”

The documents are free to download from the Scaffolding Association website:
