SCAFFOLDING BEST PRACTICE #77 – Certified Scaffolding Inspectors
The CSA Z797 Standard requires that supported scaffolds are inspected on a daily basis by a trained and certified Competent Person. This inspection must be detailed and documented (at least indicated on the scaffold tag) as complete and “Accepted for Use”. Other local regulations may permit less frequent inspections (i.e. weekly, 14 or even 21 days) however, this is no longer considered an industry best practice by many in the industry.
