Common Scaffolding Questions Answered

 

DO I REQUIRE A PERMIT FOR MY SCAFFOLDING?

You only require a scaffolding permit if your structure is to sit on/over a public highway, like a footpath or public pavement. Portsmouth Council will issue you this permit, which will probably come with certain stipulations, like the agreement to work during “quieter” hours where minimal disruption to the public will be caused. Good scaffolding companies, including our own, will help you secure a permit if you require one.

 

CAN A SCAFFOLDING STRUCTURE STAND ON UNEVEN GROUND?

Uneven ground rarely prevents our Portsmouth scaffolding contractors from doing their job, as we create precise and accurate designs that will allow us to employ poles of varying lengths to make a level structure. Baseplates can also be used to help in this area. However, if the ground is structurally unsound, we may recommend using hanging scaffolding or a similar bespoke solution.

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF SCAFFOLDING COMPANIES ARE REPUTABLE OR NOT?

All Scaffolding companies operating around Portsmouth and the wider UK should hold public and employee liability insurance, and only use scaffolding contractors who’ve completed CISRS scaffolding training with the CITB. You should also do some research on their local reputation; there are plenty of websites and forums online where you’ll find mention of disreputable scaffolding companies that have delivered unsatisfactory customer experiences.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO TO ENSURE SCAFFOLDING STRUCTURES STAY SAFE TO USE?

Our scaffolding contractors provide regular scaffolding inspections to ensure the structures they’ve erected around Portsmouth continue to be safe and stable. This is an especially important task following stormy weather, or in the rare case that a site owner suspects their scaffolding may have been tampered with.

 

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE SCAFFOLD ACCESS SERVICES OVER COMPETING SCAFFOLDING COMPANIES?

The chief reasons why clients select our scaffolding erectors for work in the Portsmouth area, is our solid reputation for quality customer service, our methodical and health-and-safety focused approach to scaffolding erection, our versatility and skill in niche areas of scaffolding like work in confined spaces, and our cost-efficiency. In short, we’re an incredibly well-rounded company that’s equally proficient in domestic, commercial and industrial aspects of the job.
