Scaffolding Safety Requirements
All scaffolding should be inspected to ensure it meets appropriate safety standards following:
- Installation and before first use
- At an interval of no more than seven days
- Any circumstances that arise which could potentially compromise the safety of the installation, for example extreme weather conditions
The legal responsibility for scaffold inspection rests with the hiring organisation and Simian can assist in the discharging of these duties

Adhoc and Scheduled Monitoring Scaffolding Inspections
We perform scheduled and ad-hoc scaffolding inspections to monitor compliance and supplement the statutory inspections carried out by or on behalf of the client. A full written report is provided and digital photographs can be included to support our findings and recommendations.
Scaffolding Safety Audits
One-off or scheduled scaffolding safety audits can be used to ascertain the adequacy of completed scaffolding structures, management arrangements (of the scaffolding supplier and/or the client), temporary works (scaffold design) arrangements and operational safety on site, including compliance with SG4:15, TG20:13 and the Work at Height Regulations.
The scope and depth of these audits can be varied to meet the particular needs of each client and the end report will pragmatically detail findings, conclusions and recommendations. 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.
