Health and Safety at Saxton Scaffolding

When working at height, or in confined spaces, Health and Safety is paramount. As a result, everything Saxton Scaffolding does is carried out with Health and Safety in mind.

For us, Health and Safety isn't just a paper exercise, but forms an everyday part of our operations. Each job starts with a risk assessment and method statement ensuring all work is conducted as safely as possible while still being completed within sufficient time frames to suit our customer's needs.

Our vigorous quality planning means you can rely on the fact that our work is carried out exactly as we say it will, and above all, built to safely exceed the required standards.

To be sure we deliver against our own benchmarks, our team leaders carry out routine inspections to ensure that each job has been completed correctly and that all our scaffolding is 100% safe.

To do this we follow UK Government guidelines which include the following:

  • Site location
  • Period of time the scaffold is required to be in place
  • Intended use
  • Height and length and any critical dimensions which may affect the scaffold
  • Number of boarded lifts
  • Maximum working loads to be imposed and maximum number of people using the scaffold at any one time
  • Type of access onto the scaffold eg staircase, ladder bay, external ladders
  • Whether there is a requirement for sheeting, netting or brickguards
  • Any specific requirements or provisions eg pedestrian walkway, restriction on tie locations, inclusion/provision for mechanical handling plant eg hoist)
  • Nature of the ground conditions or supporting structure
  • Information on the structure/building the scaffold will be erected against together with any relevant dimensions and drawings
  • Any restrictions that may affect the erection, alteration or dismantling process

Please note that these are just a few examples of the factors that we take into consideration.
