Work at height regulations 2005 – Scaffolding issues in Scotland

Following two major scaffold collapses in Edinburgh and a subsequent collapse in Kilmarnock, which is currently under investigation, HSE Inspectors across Scotland have carried out a considerable number of site visits to discuss scaffolding issues. An information sheet has been produced that gives additional guidance on the appropriate standards that HSE expects in relation to scaffold operations with particular regard to design issues and training requirements.
