Scaffold Tower Inspection Checklist (Pad of 30)
The scaffold tower inspection pad enables an organisation to work through a duplicate checklist and carry out an inspection of a scaffold tower, ensuring it is safe to use. The top copy of the checklist is displayed on the tower to indicate its safety. The duplicate copy remains in the pad as evidence that the inspection has taken place in the event of an HSE investigation.
When conducting a scaffold tower inspection, the assessor can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. This simple procedure helps you to comply with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 which state that all scaffold towers must be inspected before first use, after severe weather, after any alteration liable to affect its stability or at least every 7 days.
Once the inspection is complete, assuming that safety has been established, the inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the tower, ensuring that every employee can clearly see it is safe to use. Failing towers can be similarly identified and handed over for corrective action.
The duplicate copy of the certificate remains inside the inspection pad and can be used as evidence of inspections should you ever need to produce this for the HSE.
Each pad allows you to perform 30 inspections on a piece of equipment and is suitable for use with our book paddle kit.
