What is a scaffolding risk assessment? 

A scaffolding risk assessment is a systematic of any potential hazards associated with erecting, using, or dismantling scaffolding structures, particularly in situations involving working at height. It’s designed to ensure the safety of workers and prevent accidents by identifying and properly managing risks such as unstable foundations, inadequate bracing, falling objects, tripping or slipping hazards, or improper assembly.

By addressing these risks through measures like proper training, equipment maintenance, and adherence to safety protocols, scaffolding risk assessments enhance workplace safety and minimise the likelihood of falls or other incidents occurring during construction or maintenance activities at elevated levels.

Who is responsible for conducting a scaffolding risk assessment?

Typically, the responsibility for conducting a scaffolding risk assessment falls upon the employer or site manager overseeing the construction project. However, it’s a collaborative effort involving competent personnel such as health and safety professionals, scaffolding supervisors, and workers directly involved in erecting, using, or dismantling the scaffolding structure.
