SCAFFOLDING BEST PRACTICE #9 – Scaffold Foundations
It’s not just a metaphor, scaffold foundations are the MOST critical component of any structure. All of the guardrails and braces and ladders in the world will not compensate for a bad foundation. When it comes to SYSTEM style scaffolds (i.e. ring lock, cup lock, etc.) the need for good foundations becomes EVEN MORE critical. Mistakes made on System Scaffold foundations get carried throughout the entire structure.
