Scaffolding Safety Audits

One-off or scheduled scaffolding safety audits can be used to ascertain the adequacy of completed scaffolding structures, management arrangements (of the scaffolding supplier and/or the client), temporary works (scaffold design) arrangements and operational safety on site, including compliance with SG4:15, TG20:13 and the Work at Height Regulations.

The scope and depth of these audits can be varied to meet the particular needs of each client and the end report will pragmatically detail findings, conclusions and recommendations. Unlike many of our competitors, all of Simian’s consultants are directly employed and their geographic locations allow us to provide local service levels across the length and breadth of the UK.
