Scaffold Tower Assembly & Operating Instructions
Inspection of Scaffolding Equipment Prior to Erection
Three main areas of inspection are for corrosion, straightness of members and welds. This applies to all
components of a scaffolding system.
1. Corrosion- Heavily rusted or eroded scaffolding equipment is a telltale sign of abuse or neglect.
3. Straightness of Members- Mishandling, trucking and storing may cause damage to scaffolding
equipment. All scaffolding components should be straight and free from bends, kinks or dents.
3. Welds- Equipment should be checked before use for damage of welds and any piece of equipment
showing damaged welds or rewelding beyond the original factory welds should not be used. The factory
weld reference pertains to location and quality of welds.
While corrosion, straightness of members, and welds are of primary concern other component parts
should be checked.
4. Locking devices on frames and braces shall be in good working order, and if not, must be repaired or
replaced prior to use.
5. Coupling pins must effectively align the frame or panel legs.
6. Pivoted cross braces must have the center pivot securely in place.
7. Caster Brakes shall be in good working order and if not must be repaired or replaced prior to use.
Safe Bearing Loads For Soils
Considering that the allowable loads (bearing) on various soils and rock range from less that 1,000 p.s.f. to
more than 50,000 p.s.f. care should be exercised in determining the capacity of the soil for every scaffolding
job, realizing that weather conditions can turn an otherwise suitable ground condition into a hazardous
situation. As an example, dry clay with an allowable bearing capacity of 8,000 p.s.f. could become very plastic
after a rainfall and drop to less than 2,000 p.s.f.
Care should also be taken not to excessively disturb the soil. If fill is required in areas where scaffolding is
used, a qualified engineer should be consulted as to materials and compaction.
II.
Foundations
The purpose of a good foundation or mud sill is to distribute the scaffolding load over a suitable ground area.
The size of the footing or sill is determined be the total load carried over a particular ground area, and by the
nature of the soil supporting these sills.
The total load should be computed and the sills designed accordingly.
When scaffolding from earth fill, the areas should be leveled and the sills spaced in a pattern assuring
adequate stability for all scaffolding legs.
III.
Erection of Frames
The work of erecting the scaffolding should be under the supervision of a person with proper experience and
aptitude for securing a safe installation and who is familiar with all Local, State and Federal Regulations
concerning scaffolding as well as the SSFI Scaffolding Safety Rules.
It shall be the responsibility of the person supervising the erection of the scaffold to see that all components
and locking devices are in working order, and no damaged or deteriorated equipment is used in the setup.
Should any scaffolding become damaged after the equipment has been erected, Workman shall not be
allowed on the same until the damaged items have been repaired or replaced.
Scaffold Tower Assembly & Operating Instructions

Advance planning will help the erection of scaffolding to progress smoothly. The equipment should be
unloaded as close to the area of use as possible and should be arranged in the order it is to be used in the
setup. Adjustment screws should be set to the approximate final adjustment before setting up the scaffolding.
Check that all coupling pins are matched with the proper panels. Consult safety rules as recommended by the
Institute.
After erecting the first tier of scaffold frames, plumb and level (using instruments) all frames so that no matter
how high the final scaffolding setup, the additional frames will also be in correct alignment.
As erection proceeds, securely tie all scaffolding to the structure at the ends and at least every 30’ horizontally,
and at height intervals not to exceed * four (4) times the minimum base dimension. Freestanding scaffold
towers must be restrained from tipping by guying or other means. Scaffold frames must be fastened together at
coupling pins where there is a possibility of uplift.

E. TIE CONTINUOUS (RUNNING) SCAFFOLDS TO THE WALL OR STRUCTURE at each end and at least
every 30 feet of length when scaffold height exceeds the maximum allowable free standing dimension.
Begin ties or stabilizers when the scaffold height exceeds that dimension, and repeat at vertical intervals not
greater than 26 feet. The top anchor shall be placed no lower than four (4) times the base dimension
from the top of the completed scaffold. Anchors must prevent scaffold from tipping into or away from wall
or structure. Stabilize circular or irregular scaffolds in such a manner that completed scaffold is secure
and restrained from tipping.
When scaffolds are partially or fully enclosed or subjected to overturning loads, specific precautions shall be
taken to insure the frequency and accuracy of ties to the wall and structure. Due to increased loads
resulting from wind or overturning loads the scaffolding component to which ties are subjected shall be
checked for additional loads.
F. WHEN FREE STANDING SCAFFOLD TOWERS exceed four (4) times their minimum base dimension
vertically, they must be restrained from tipping. (CAL/OSHA and some government agencies require
stricter ratio of 3 to 1)
G. DO NOT ERECT SCAFFOLDS NEAR ELECTRICAL POWER LINES UNLESS PROPER
PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN. Consult the power service company for advice.
H. A MEANS OF ACCESS TO ALL PLATFORMS SHALL BE PROVIDED.

SCAFFOLDING SAFETY RULES
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH MAY RESULT FROM IMPROPER ERECTION OR USE of scaffolding
equipment. Erectors and users must be familiar with and follow safe practice and the Safety Rules contained
herein. These Safety Rules cover generalized situations only and should not be used to replace any other
additional safety and precautionary measures that may be necessary to cover the many usual or unusual
conditions encountered during installation or dismantling. The
Rules are not intended to conflict with, or supersede the requirements of OSHA or any other governmental
regulations, codes and ordinances; the user must refer to and comply with all such specific provisions of law.
A. FOLLOW SAFE PRACTICE OF THE SAFETY RULES AND COMPLY WITH OSHA and all other federal,
state and local regulations, codes and ordinances pertaining to scaffolding during any use of the equipment.
B. THE POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS NATURE OF SCAFFOLDING ERECTION WORK makes it important
that all personnel assigned to this work be instructed in these Safety Rules, safe practices and procedures and
be under the supervision of an experienced and knowledgeable person. Assure that these Safety Rules are
posted and that all persons erecting and using the scaffold are aware of and follow them.
C. REPORT ANY UNSAFE CONDITIONS TO SUPERVISORS. Do not work or allow persons to work on
scaffolds when sick or suffering from dizziness, unsteadiness or other physical symptoms which could affect
their ability to work safely.
D. INSPECT ALL EQUIPMENT BEFORE USING. Never use any equipment which is damaged, defective or
deteriorated in any way.
E. INSPECT ERECTED SCAFFOLD FREQUENTLY and be sure that they are maintained in safe condition,
that scaffold connections have not become loose and that components have not been improperly released or
removed.
F. MAINTAIN ALL EQUIPMENT IN GOOD REPAIR. Never use corroded or excessively rusted equipment; the
strength of such equipment is not known.
G. CONSULT YOUR SCAFFOLDING SUPPLIER WHEN IN DOUBT. NEVER TAKE CHANCES.
H. ALWAYS READ THESE SAFETY RULES in conjunction with the safety packet.
8
Scaffold Tower Assembly & Operating Instructions
I. ALWAYS SUPPORT SCAFFOLDS FROM A SOUND, STABLE SURFACE and assure that it is adequate to
support the intended scaffold loads. Never support scaffolds on unstable, loose objects which could tip, break
or become dislodged.
J. LIFT AND LOWER COMPONENTS CAREFULLY AND SAFELY; use tag lines when appropriate to the
handling method. Never allow excessive quantities of components to be stockpiled on partially complete
scaffolds. Stock only sufficient components consistent with the progress of the work. Lower dismantled
components as soon as possible. Never drop components deliberately.
K. TIEING THE SCAFFOLD TO THE STRUCTURE IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE to the stability and safety of
the scaffold. Assure that the structure to which the scaffold is tied or anchored is capable of safely supporting
all loads imposed by the scaffold.
L. FREE STANDING SCAFFOLDS other than wall scaffolds must be restrained from tipping by guying or other
means, recognizing that stability is essential to the safety of the scaffold.
M. INSTALL GUARDRAILS, MIDRAILS, AND TOEBOARDS at all openings, open sides and ends of every
work platform when recommended or required.
N. NEVER USE LADDERS OR MAKESHIFT DEVICES on top of scaffold to increase the height. Never place
plank on or stand on guardrails and mid-rails.
O. POWER LINES NEAR SCAFFOLDS ARE DANGEROUS. Use extreme caution and consult the power
service company to have the lines de-energized, insulated or otherwise rendered safe.
Never allow any installation or use of scaffolds until this is done.
P. WHEN ANY CANTILEVERS ARE USED, such as brackets, etc., proper care and precautions must be
taken to prevent tipping of the scaffold.
Q. FOR ROLLING SCAFFOLDS, FOLLOW THESE ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES:
a. Never ride rolling scaffolds.
b. Remove all material and equipment from the scaffold before moving.
c. Lock caster brakes at all times the scaffold is not being moved.
d. Do not attempt to move rolling scaffolds without sufficient help and roll on level surfaces only. Watch out for
holes or floor obstructions and for overhead obstructions, including power lines, energized craneways, and
other hazards.
e. The maximum platform height of a rolling scaffold must not exceed four (4) times the narrowest dimension.
Check local state/OSHA Regulations for other height/base limitations such as 3:1 in CA, OH, OR, MT and ME;
3.5:1 in WA. Comply with these regulations by appropriately widening and /or lengthening the scaffold at the
lower levels so that the above proportions are not exceeded. If the base dimensions cannot be increased,
extreme care must be taken to secure the scaffold from tipping; it must be guyed, or tied to a solid structure
and maintained in a stabilized condition at all times so that it cannot tip over while supporting persons, while
being moved or while being erected or dismantled.
f. Apply pulling or pushing forces at the bottom frames and as close to the scaffold base as possible. Never
attempt to move scaffold from on top.
g. If rolling scaffolds are used outdoors, care must be taken to assure that they cannot become unstable due to
wind or other conditions.
DO NOT OVERLOAD SCAFFOLD. Refer to and do not exceed the scaffold load capacities.
