Health And Safety Guidance
Initially there is no structure in place against which the scaffold can be tied. The scaffold may surround a structure, but it is still vital that measures to ensure stability are incorporated. Accordingly the initial stability of the scaffold structure must be achieved by means other than ties. Design input is still critical.
The aim of this guidance note is to give some practical guidance on how to comply with the Work at Height Regulations (WAHR) 2005 with regard to internal edge protection.
