We have recently finished this local commercial scaffolding project for Plymouth community homes on a site that is home to both elderly and vulnerable residents. Now, at Drake Scaffolding we work to very high standards anyway and all of our work is undertaken with the utmost consideration for local residents, passersby, visitors, workers and the general public. Safety is our number one priority when it comes to contract scaffolding as every job is different and every project has different requirements.

Safety and Care a Priority

While all of our projects are undertaken with care and thought for the residents and visitors of the buildings that we work on, this one we had to be especially careful, considerate and cautious. We have to make sure that the scaffolding is constructed leaving clear paths for ambulances and other vehicles/visitors to get in and out and that there are no obstructions.

Attention to Detail

Obviously, we had to ensure that no debris fell so we used netting on all elevations. We also put yellow foam on all uprights to reduce any impact or injury should someone walking into them accidentally. This particular project was carried out on a much tighter deadline than most of our jobs as each block had to have the scaffold erected and removed as quickly as possible so we had to work fast with the utmost attention to safety for residents.

All Staff DBS Checked

Working on a site with vulnerable adults means that all of our staff have to carry ID with them at all time and they have to be DBS checked. As we work on sites like schools this is a standard requirement so you can be sure that if you hire Drake Scaffolding for your commercial scaffolding requirements then you are hiring a team that are cleared to work with residents, tenants, students etc.
