Scaffolds Application 5 July 2022

How can I make sure my rolling tower is horizontal?

Balance means stability. If your rolling tower is horizontal, you increase your own safety and that of your colleagues. You also make construction easier and lighter. But how do you build scaffolding to be balanced?


Stability begins with the base. When you've built the first two metres of the rolling tower, check that it is horizontal. Measure this in terms of length and width. If it is not horizontal, adjust using the wheels. They can be adjusted up and down to create stability.


Once you've built the structure, check that the scaffold is still horizontal. The weight of the scaffold can lead to it sinking if the ground is too soft. When building the scaffold: measuring is knowing (and in this case, safe working).
