Dear All Safety Professionals!!!

Site HR website seems a very good place for getting solutions to almost all the HR queries... HSE also got its on place in this site... It's really showing the importance of HSE in today's world...

So I wish to utilize this and make this a place from where all of us can clear our queries related to Health Safety & Environment... A place from where we can get solutions to HSE... A place for healthy discussions related to HSE....

Instead of opening so many new threads, let us keep one... This is my suggestion and hope surely will help all of us... We can refer one book, instead of keep on referring too many books... Nobody is perfect and no man is an island... So hope that this will be the beginning of a good knowledge sharing & gaining process to all the safety professionals in this forum...

Request all the safety professionals to take this positively and come forward with your views, thoughts, suggestions, experience, etc... Let us build a team... Be hand in hand in the Voyage of safety!!!

I hope we can start with a healthy discussion on "Scaffolding Safety"...

Awaiting reply's from all of you!!!

With regards,
Dipil Kumar V

Dear All...
No reply even after two days of posting... Hope nobody seems interested for a discussion in the way which I thought... However lets hope for the best & prepare for the worst!!!
Me attaching a file "A Guide to Scaffold Use in the Construction Industry,” which is based on OSHA’s standard... Hope this may be helpfull to all of you...
Now I would like to clarrify the follwing:
1. Do anyone having the latest Indian Standard for Scaffolding?
2. How many types of Scaffolds are there as per IS?
3. Providing Vertical ladder (Monkey Ladder) as a means of access and egress in Scaffolding is acceptable. Is it according to standards?
Hope some positive discussions on the above from all of you.
With regards,
Dipil Kumar V

Dear Mr. Dipil Your ideas are appreciable. Hope to continue being a part of the thread. Good Luck!! Regards Vin
Dear Dipil,
Very good initiative & pls. proceed with the same passion.
I don't have the IS stds. But I can share with you about the types of Scaffolds -
1. Independent tied scaffolds - 3 different types like Light duty, Medium duty & Heavy duty
2. Mobile tower scaffolds
3. Birdcage scaffolds
4. Truss scaffolds
5. Independent scaffolds - It differs from Independent tied scaffolds. This is not tied to the structure for stability & so the height of them shall not bemore than 3 times its minimum base dimensions.
6. Trestle scaffolds

Hope that you find it useful.

@ kvsundaram
Really helpful... no doubt...
Whether this classification of scaffold is based on IS or any other standards?
However Mr. Kesav Pillai strated another discussions to clear the doubts regarding the scaffolding... I have posted the same quireis there also...
Let us wait for getting the answers from that thread also... Then will conclude... You also please participate in it and share your expertise.
