Scaffolding Consultancy

Independent Scaffolding Inspections & Audits

The legal responsibility for scaffold inspection rests with the hiring organisation and SIMIAN can assist in the discharging of these duties.

As part of our comprehensive scaffolding safety consultancy services, we can provide tailored scaffolding inspection services and safety audits to meet each client’s particular requirements. Utilising our professional scaffolding consultancy means you will be actively protecting yourself against risk of incident and any liability issues that may arise.

SIMIAN carries comprehensive indemnity insurance for the provision of these independent and impartial services, with only one motivation – to protect scaffold users and improve the general safety of the scaffold we are inspecting.

Our scaffolding consultancy service provides competent and expert advice from professionally qualified scaffolding safety consultants, who all have extensive expertise of working at height safety consultancy.

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.
