Scaffolding poses significant risks, which is why there exist stringent legal regulations governing its planning, execution, and oversight. Accidents involving scaffolding can lead to injuries for the operators or workers utilizing it, and may also endanger innocent bystanders or passersby at construction sites. Without proper safety measures, scaffolding accidents can result in severe or even fatal injuries. Fortunately, both employers and workers can implement various safety precautions to mitigate these risks. Understanding the sources of danger is crucial for effectively preventing accidents.

How Scaffolding Accidents are Caused?

One of the most hazardous risks associated with scaffold usage is working at elevated heights. Additionally, improper assembly of the scaffold by untrained personnel or the use of corroded substitute components can result in collapse, partial collapse, or instability of safety rails and platform boards.

Scaffolding accident liability

Hinges on whether any of the aforementioned regulations were violated by an employer. It must be demonstrated that the employer’s actions or lack thereof directly contributed to the occurrence of the scaffold accident.
