You can use a scaffold to work on just about anything – silos, tanks, chimneys, bridges, stairways, roofs, ramps, and ceilings are just a few examples. In its most basic form, a supported scaffold is just a platform and a set of uprights so many people think that anyone can set one up.
That is why too many workers are injured or killed when they use a scaffold – components fail, planks break, handrails give way, or the entire structure collapses in a heap. Most scaffold accidents happen because scaffold users are untrained or improperly trained.
