Plan Job Identify scaffold and associated equipment For basic scaffolding, you need to know a wide range of scaffold and associated equipment. The diagram below, for example, shows the basic parts of a modular scaffold. Parts used in a basic modular scaffold: StandardGuardrail Midrail ToeboardTransverse brace Transom Sole plate Base plate Ledger Longitudinal brace Working platform

Plan Job QUIT EASY GUIDES AUSTRALIA PTY LTD Scaffolding Quiz DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Plan Job - Summary Check for hazards before you start the scaffolding work. 1. Plan Job The hierarchy of hazard control is a range of control measures used to reduce the risk of workplace hazards. It includes: elimination, substitution, isolation, engineering controls, safe work practices and PPE. Make sure you are aware of the powerline distances for your state or territory. Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications to make sure the scaffold is suitable for the work. Consult with appropriate personnel when planning the scaffold work. Different scaffolds have different capacities. Always check that the scaffold meets the requirement of the job. Make sure you are wearing the necessary safety equipment for the work you are performing. Do not be afraid to ask questions if you are not clear about instructions or directions.

The maximum extension on an adjustable base plate is 600mm. The maximum load allowed on an adjustable base plate is 3030kg. The minimum width of timber used as a sole plate is 225mm. 225mm 150mm 600mm 2. Select and Inspect Plant and Equipment

Plan Job QUIT EASY GUIDES AUSTRALIA PTY LTD Scaffolding Quiz DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Hazard prevention and control measures Before you start to erect a scaffold, you need to put in place ways to prevent and control hazards. You could: Restrict access to an area Remove any hazards Move equipment and vehicles that are not part of the scaffolding Set up warning signs and barricades Put up overhead protection Create pedestrian exclusion zones Perform any control measures listed on the JSA or SWMS. 3.

Plan Job QUIT EASY GUIDES AUSTRALIA PTY LTD Scaffolding Quiz DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Soil types Check if the soil can support the scaffold. Different types of soil have different load-bearing pressures. Below are different soil types from soft to hard (gravel). Soft clay Stiff clay Dry sand Granite Shale Gravel (road base) Check the type of soil Check to see if the soil can support a scaffold. Different types of soils can take light or heavy scaffold.

Plan Job QUIT EASY GUIDES AUSTRALIA PTY LTD Scaffolding Quiz DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Containment sheeting Sheeting is used to help protect workers and pedestrians from wind, rain, dust and direct sunlight. The design of a sheeted scaffold should be checked by an engineer. When installing sheeting you should consider: The weight of the sheeting The wind load created by the sheeting Strength and suitability of fixings Sheeting should be on the outside of a scaffold (unless otherwise allowed by the design) Avoid gaps between the sheeting and the platform edge. 4.
