Scaffolding Companies in Guildford
How Our Scaffold Erectors Comply with Industry Regulations

Due to the dangers that come with working at height, all scaffolding companies must comply with regulations surrounding the safety, performance and design of scaffold structures. Having been providing scaffolding hire, including temporary roof scaffolding, in the Woking and Guildford areas since 1987, DAG ensures all work adheres to current regulations. Our scaffolding erectors recognise and appreciate the risks involved in our industry and do everything possible to provide a safe environment for building work.

Following industry best practice and legislation greatly minimises the chance of accidents and injury. Consequently, we never take shortcuts when designing, assembling, inspecting and dismantling scaffolds. The following are some of the main regulations we adhere to, to deliver safe and reliable services:

  1. The Work at Height Regulations 2005

    These regulations exist to prevent injury and death from falling. Anyone in charge of work at height activities, such as scaffolding companies, must ensure proper planning and supervision of work, and that competent persons carry out tasks.

    As scaffolding erectors with over 100 years of joint experience, we take all necessary steps to maximise the safety of your site in Guildford or the surrounding areas. This includes doing as much work as possible from the ground, providing protection from falling objects and using the right equipment.
  2. Scaffold Design Specifications

    DAG Scaffolding Ltd provides full designs and illustrations using specialist SMART Scaffolder software. Whether you require temporary roof scaffolding, access scaffolds or something else, this ensures scaffolding hire meets your requirements and is suitable for intended use.

    All scaffolds we supply meet British and European standards for design and performance. This includes BS EN 12811 as well as BS EN 12810 for prefabricated scaffolds and BS EN 1004 for mobile scaffold towers.
  3. Competent Assembly

    In line with The Work at Height Regulations, competent persons must carry out work. As one of the most trusted scaffolding companies in the Guildford area, our customers have complete faith in our team.

    Our scaffolding erectors have CITB and CISRS training, COTS Part 1 and 2, COTS Advanced Scaffolder, inspection training and CSCS cards. In addition, all our personnel receive relevant health and safety training and follow approved methods for assembling scaffold towers, such as 3T and AGR systems.
  4. Inspection Regulations

    As a scaffolding hire company, we have a duty to inspect scaffold materials and structures. Our team in Guildford carries out inspections either immediately after assembly or before first use. We also inspect scaffolds and temporary roof scaffolding every 7 days while they are in use, as well as after any periods of adverse weather.

    Professional inspections ensure the ongoing integrity and safety of scaffolds, minimising the risk of accident or injury.
