When should the aluminum scaffold be equipped with a fall protection device?

Sep 30, 2018

According to the above requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, if our aluminum scaffolding is about 3 meters above the ground level, workers must be equipped with personal fall protection. Or when using erecting or dismantling aluminum scaffolding, you must also use fall protection.


For most aluminum scaffolding, protective railings must be located at all sides and at both ends of the frame, especially for supported scaffolding and other forms of scaffolding, but for hanging blue aluminum scaffolding, it needs protection Railings and personal fall protection are available, and safety slings are used instead of safety belts to prevent personal fall.


For supported aluminum scaffolding, the upper rail is generally 96.52-114.3 cm away from the operating platform, so the upper rail must withstand 200 pounds of force. For the single-point and double-point gondola aluminum scaffolding, the load requirement is 45 kg. The middle railing is placed between the operating platform and the upper rail and must be able to support 67.5 kg of force.http://www.eg-scaffold.com/
