Common Scaffolding Accidents

Working on scaffolding can be extremely dangerous, particularly if an employer provides inadequate maintenance or supervision. Scaffolding accidents that commonly result in construction site accident claims include:

  • Hit by Falling Objects: If a heavy object is knocked from scaffolding or the scaffolding itself collapses, injuries to those below can be severe.
  • Falls from Height: Scaffolding accident claims often involve falls from height, caused by incorrectly installed scaffolding or inadequate supervision of those working on scaffolding.

Safety Requirements

If you suspect that a breach of any of the below safety measures was directly responsible for your scaffolding accident, contact the construction site accident lawyers at Carrs Solicitors as soon as possible.

  • Scaffold boards must meet British Standard BS2482
  • If the scaffolding is more than two metres above the ground, sufficiently strong barriers should be installed to prevent falls from height.
  • Boards must be kept clear to reduce the risk of heavy objects falling and hitting passers-by and construction site workers below.
  • Ladders must be secured and properly maintained.
  • Scaffolding should be erected on a firm and level surface.
  • Scaffolding requires weekly inspections in order to ensure it is safe and secure.
