Scaffolding must be inspected by a competent person:
In addition to scaffolding structure inspections, the following should be scheduled:
A competent person must carry out general access scaffolding inspections. Written proof of the competence of persons used to inspect scaffolding should always be obtained by the person responsible for the scaffolding and inspection work.
A written report must be prepared by the competent person. The report should be written out at the time of the inspection but if this is not possible it must be provided to the responsible person within 24 hours.
A copy of the report should be kept on site and a further copy be retained for a period of three months from the completion of the work with the person on whose behalf the inspection was carried out.
If a scaffold fails inspection this must be reported by the person carrying out the inspection, to the person responsible for the scaffolding, as soon as possible.
