Scaffolding platform shocking photo


The use of barrels to hold up this scaffolding platform is another example of poor planning and dangerous innovation. The barrels are not suitable scaffold foundations and simply cannot support the weight of the scaffold and loads on it, such as bricks and people.
Other bodgey extras include:
• welded barrels
• loose bricks around the site
• unsecure ladder
• single-plank working platform
• no fall protection/guardrail
How hard can it be? Take time and organise the right equipment for the job prior to starting work.
