Using scaffolding on a building site enhances safety for construction workers, but when it’s raining, how can builders make sure that their safety isn’t compromised, especially during the rainy months?
All snow, ice, mud and any other debris such as wet leaves should be removed thoroughly before using the scaffold. Similarly, you should also avoid using scaffolding during any adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, sleet, ice, snow and strong winds.
While it is possible to work safely and use scaffolding in the rain, the cold and rain can affect productivity as well as the health of the scaffolder. Therefore, it’s important for all scaffold workers to take regular breaks.
