When it comes to maintenance work, many people would think first of all about using ladders. This could be step ladders or extension ladders leant against a wall. It is natural to think about these as an option, and in some places a ladder is a good choice. However, in many instances it is better to use scaffolding. This is partly for safety, but there are several practical advantages to using scaffolding in Chessington rather than a ladder.
What are the main advantages to using scaffolding in Chessington rather than a ladder?
The most important advantage is health and safety. With maintenance, all managers and employers know that health and safety is a big concern. This is because of a genuine interest in the well-being of your employees. But it also comes from the knowledge that the health and safety of your employees, clients and any members of the public is legally the responsibility of the organisation and the management. It is a simple fact that a properly established scaffolding is more stable and safer than a ladder leaning against a wall, even if there is a second member of staff holding the ladder. This is especially the case if the job will take some time, as there is always the risk the person will forget they are on a ladder, or the person at the bottom will get distracted. With the use of scaffolding in Chessington, you can be certain that you are protecting health and safety.
With scaffolding in Chessington maintenance workers can also have better access to the job. For one thing, they have a better position for reaching the work area since they can step back to have a comfortable reach, rather than balancing close to the wall at the top of a ladder. This gives ease of access and makes the overall work easier to complete.
Because the work can be done in a better position, this will impact on the quality of the project. For one thing, with scaffolding in Chessington your staff will not be rushing to get off a ladder, so they are more likely to do a thorough job. For another, they will have better control over the tools by working on scaffolding, and a better view of the project, resulting in a better quality of work.
By using scaffolding in Chessington, you will actually save time and money. This might seem an odd claim, as scaffolding is generally more expensive than a ladder. But since the work can be carried out more effectively, without a worker at the bottom of the ladder for safety, and since the quality of work will be better, the overall result is less time needed on future maintenance and an overall saving in time and money.
