Masters Scaffolding ensures compliance with relevant model codes or practice and WHS legislative requirements. We adopt a safe work methodology set out in SafeWork publications such as “Erecting, Altering and Dismantling Scaffold – Part 1: Prefabricated steel modular scaffolding”
We ensure that there are continuous edge protection supporting workers and materials. We use equipment such as gin wheels and scaffold bags to ensure that components are safely transported around the project and at heights. All scaffolders are required to use belts/toolboxes to secure their tools. We do not overload scaffold decks when working. We have workers trained in the use of safety harnesses and can implement use of these fall prevention systems on specific jobs that are certified as suitable. We adopt a pre-planning practice whereby other contractors and members of the public are excluded from work areas to prevent risk from scaffold work overhead.
We have our team leaders and supervisors take workers through the SWMS (Safe Work Method Statement) controls at pre-starts to make sure that they are constantly reminded about safe work practices.
