Shows holder is a competent labourer and has current up to date Health and Safety knowledge Obtained by: Experience/industry accreditation or achieving an N/SVQ level 1 in Access Operations and Rigging Trainee Scaffolders Card For operatives who have been accepted by their employer to be trained as a scaffolder. The operative must have passed the Health and Safety test . The first card is issued for 18months. The trainee card can be renewed for a further 18 months if the candidate has attended a Part 1. Trainee cards are only renewable once. Scaffolders Card For operatives who have satisfactorily completed the approved training courses and achieved an N/SVQ level 2 in Access Operations and Rigging Basic cards have a 5 year expiry date. Basic cards are renewable on proof of passing the Health and Safety test within two years of application. Advanced Scaffolders Card For Scaffolders who have held card for 1 year and satisfactorily completed the Advanced training course and achieved an N/SVQ level 3 in Access Operations and Rigging Advanced cards have a 5 year expiry date. Advanced cards are renewable on proof of passing the Health and Safety test within two years of application.

Future developments Scaffold safety Inspection course Ties testing and inspection for supervisors TG20 update Summary • CISRS the only skills card for scaffolders recognised by Industry • Four categories available • CISRS affiliated to CSCS • Obtained by completing NASC approved training courses and achieving an appropriate N/SVQ • Renewable every 5 years • Training and achievement grants available to CITB levy payers SG4:05 Preventing Falls in scaffolding and Falsework Avoid work at height so far as is reasonably Practicable: Not normally an option for the Scaffolding Contractor AVOID WORK Designers and Principal Contractor should AT HEIGHTS Identify opportunities to avoid work at height. Scaffolding and Falsework Contractors should promote Innovations to their client that can avoid work at height. Where it is Not reasonably practicable to avoid work at Height you should consider: Preventing all falls from height where there is a risk of injury regardless of height. Collective protection measures as a priority over personal protection PREVENT FALLS Use equipment (such as guard-rails) to provide collective fall protection & prevent falls occurring before resorting to personal protection such as work restraint harness and lanyards for example MITIGATE THE Where it is not reasonably practicable to avoid DISTANCE AND Or prevent falls; then, CONSEQUENCES The distance a person can fall and the consequences OF A FALL (potential injury) must be minimised. Consider collective protection measures priority over Personal protection. Collective protection in the form of soft landing systems (e.g. Air-Bags and safety nets) are not commonly a practical Solution for scaffolding. Personal protection systems (safety harness) Must be worn GIVE COLLECTIVE And attached to a suitable anchor point – in accordance With this guide – when at risk of falling. PROTECTION PRIORITY OVER PERSONAL PROTECTION SG4:05 addendum HSE activity in relation to enforcement of SG4 Manufacturer activity in relation to SG4 Interim guidance Planned updates Rescue procedures Updated guidance on suspension trauma TG20:05 TG20:0? Introduction of different widths of Working platform Revised the allowable Facade bracing patterns Revised the guidance for the installation of plan bracing Revised guidance for the installation of ledger bracing Guidance on the layout of ties Revised load classes for Putlog scaffolds Revised maximum safe working heights Options for a reduced Bay length intoduced Conditions for basic scaffolds Is a standard scaffold Load classes, maximum bay lengths comply with Table 1 TG20:0? There are only 2 working lifts ,one fully loaded and one 50% loaded Lift height is not greater than 2.0m (1st lift may be 2.7, maximum The scaffold is not subject to loading of materials by mechanical means. The wind factor S is not greater than 40 Alternate pars of standards are braced At least 50% of ties shall be fixed to ledger braced standards Vertical interval of ties shall not exceed 4m Conditions for basic scaffolds Plan bracing is fitted every 4lifts and 12 bays unless facade bracing is across braced pairs of standards If sheeted the sheeting is attached to the ledgers and principle guardrails as a minimum When sheeted the top lift is tied at platform level Façade bracing is fitted Conditions for Free standing scaffolds Not more than 6m high The scaffold must not be sheeted or netted Lift heights must not exceed 2m Bay lengths no more than 2.1m Only one lift boarded ( maximum loading 2kN/m2) Scaffold width is either 4 boards plus one or five boards Alternate pairs of standards are braced Single un-joint tubes used for standards and rakers Façade bracing fitted every five bays Maximum wind factor S=26 Procedure to determine safe height of a Basic scaffold Choose basic wind speed (vb) using Fig.7 Establish critical Direction of wind. Establish topographical factor (T) using Fig.8 Establish the altitude Calculate wind factor using S=Vb x T x (1+A/1000) Procedure to determine safe height of a Basic scaffold Establish Town or Country Determine closest upwind distance to sea. Use flowchart 4 for independents to determine safe height.
