FAQs About Scaffolding
Where do I buy scaffolding?
- Scaffolds such as swing-stage systems may be available for sale at a United Rentals branch. Contact your closest United Rentals for scaffolding options. A sales representative can ensure you get the scaffolding system you need that has been carefully inspected and maintained.
Who is authorized to inspect a scaffold?
- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires scaffolding to be inspected before each shift by a competent person on the jobsite; it does not have to be inspected each shift by the person who constructed the scaffold. However, a competent employee must complete a visual inspection for defects, structural damage or excessive wear.
What should not be used to support a scaffold?
- According to OSHA, no unstable object should be used to support a scaffold. OSHA standard 1926.451(c)(2)(iv) says no front-end loader or any such earthmoving piece of equipment should be used to support a scaffold unless specifically designed for that purpose by the manufacturer.
