SG4:05 Preventing Falls in scaffolding and
                Avoid work at height so far as is reasonably

                Not normally an option for the Scaffolding
 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
                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
                      Where it is not reasonably practicable to avoid
    DISTANCE AND      Or prevent falls; then,
                      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.

    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
      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.
