Q: Do I need to be Certified to Set up scaffolding?

A: No, only for heights above 5 metres.

A: On some commercial sites, yes. In general you are encouraged to take all precautionary steps to avoid accidents and that can mean using a hand railed platform instead.

 

Q: Who comes up with all your unique designs?

A: We do… none of our gear is ‘me too’, we’re tradespeople and we talk to tradespeople and listen hard. One of the team may go to bed and sleep with the light on all night and by morning there’s another bright idea!
