DISMANTLING NOTES
The work of dismantling scaffolding should be under the supervision of an individual with proper
experience and aptitude. The following should be observed while dismantling:
1. It shall be the responsibility of the user to read and comply with the following common sense
guidelines that are designed to promote safety in the dismantling of scaffolding.
2. Check to see if scaffold has been structurally altered in any way that would make it unsafe; and, if
so, reconstruct where necessary before commencing with the dismantling procedures.
3. Dismantle scaffold from the top down. Begin by removing all accessories from that section being
dismantled at the time.
4. On stacked scaffolds do not remove ties and braces until dismantling has reached the section to
which they are attached.
5. Always work within the inside of the scaffolding.
6. When moving up or down the scaffold do NOT climb on ties, braces or un-braced components.
Climb over the top of the frame. Do not swing around outside of the frame.
7. Be sure that area below is clear of individuals not involved in the dismantling and is secured
against unauthorized access.
8. Lower scaffold components in a safe manner as they are dismantled. Avoid dropping or throwing
the components as this could result in injury or damage to the equipment.
9. Use energy absorbing lanyards and full body harness when feasible

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.
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.
R. DO NOT OVERLOAD SCAFFOLD. Refer to and do not exceed the scaffold load capacities.
