General Requirements for Scaffolds

No University worker will configuration framework. All platform to be utilized on University property will be “cylindrical framework” planned by makers endorsed by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) as well as OSHA and be in a prepared to-gather state.

No University representative will erect platform more noteworthy than or equivalent to 20 feet. All erection of platform more noteworthy than or equivalent to 20 feet will be directed by an authorized temporary worker.

Limit/Loads

A certified individual should configuration all framework as per OSHA 29 CFR 1926.451 “General Requirements for Scaffolds” and 29 CFR 1926.452 “Extra Requirements Applicable to Specific Types of Scaffolds”.

Fixed platforms more than 125 feet in stature and turning frameworks more than 60 feet in tallness will be planned by an expert designer. All gear will be reviewed to guarantee that it is in acceptable condition and is useful. Harmed or weakened gear will not be utilized.

All frameworks and their segments should uphold without disappointment its own weight and at any rate multiple times the greatest expected burden applied or sent to the platform.

Stages

Stages will be built as follows:

Stages will be altogether planked and decked with space not more than one inch wide between the stages and uprights;

The stage will not avoid mutiple/60 of the range when stacked;

All stages will be stayed away from trash or different obstacles that may thwart the working freedom on the stage;

Wood boards will be examined to see that they are reviewed for framework use, are sound and in great condition, straight grained, liberated from saw cuts, parts and openings;

Stages and walkways will be at any rate 18 creeps in width. At the point when the work territory is under 18 inches wide, guardrails or potentially close to home fall capture frameworks will be utilized;

Where stages are covered to make a long stage, the cover will happen just over backings, and will not be under 12 inches except if the stages are nailed;

A stage more prominent than 10 feet long will not stretch out over its help in excess of 18 inches, except if it is planned and introduced so the cantilevered segment of the stage can uphold workers without tipping, or has guardrails which block representative admittance to the cantilevered end;

A stage under 10 feet long will not stretch out over its help in excess of 12 inches, except if it is planned and introduced so the cantilevered bit of the stage can uphold representatives without tipping, or has guardrails which block worker admittance to the cantilevered end;

Wood surface will not be covered with dark completions, other than the edges for making recognizable proof;

Stages might be covered occasionally with wood additives, fire-retardant completes, and slip-safe completions; notwithstanding, the covering will not dark the top or base wood surfaces; and

Each finish of the stage, except if cleated or in any case controlled by snares or identical methods, will reach out over the centerline of its help in any event six inches.

Platform segments produced by various makers will not be intermixed except if the segments fit together without power and the framework’s underlying respectability is kept up.

Framework segments made of unique metals will not be utilized together except if a capable individual has discovered that galvanic activity won’t decrease the strength of any part.

Guardrails

All frameworks in excess of six feet over the lower level will ensure workers with guardrails on each open side of the platform. Guardrails will be introduced along the open sides and finishes prior to delivering the framework for use by the representatives, other than erection or destroying groups.

Guardrails are not needed when:

The front finish of all stages are under 14 crawls from the essence of the work; and

At the point when workers are putting and lathing 18 inches or less from the front edge.

Guardrails will be built as follows:

The top edge stature of top rails on upheld frameworks fabricated or put in help after January 1, 2000 will be introduced between 38 – 45 creeps over the stage surface. The top edge stature on upheld platforms made or put in assistance before January 1, 2000, and on completely suspended frameworks where both a guardrail and an individual fall capture framework are required will be between 36 – 45 inches;

At the point when mid-rails, screens, network, halfway vertical individuals, strong boards, or identical primary individuals are utilized, they will be introduced between the top edge of the guardrail framework and the platform stage;

At the point when mid-rails are utilized, they will be introduced at a tallness halfway between the top edge of the guardrail framework and the framework stage;

At the point when screens and cross section are utilized, they will stretch out from the top edge of the guardrail framework to the platform stage, and along the whole opening between the backings;

At the point when transitional individuals are utilized, they will not be in excess of 19 inches separated;

Each top rail or equal individual from a guardrail framework will be equipped for withstanding a power of at any rate 100 pounds for frameworks on single-point movable suspension or two-point movable suspension platforms, and in any event 200 pounds for guardrail frameworks introduced on different platforms;

At the point when the heaps indicated above are applied a descending way, the top edge will not dip under the tallness over the stage surface needed previously;

Mid-rails, screens, network, halfway vertical individuals, strong boards and comparable primary individuals will be fit for withstanding a power of in any event 75 pounds for frameworks with a base 100 pound toprail limit, and at any rate 150 pounds for frameworks with a base 200 pound top rail limit;

Guardrails will be surfaced to keep injury to a representative from penetrates or gashes and forestall catching of attire;

The closures, all things considered, will not shade the terminal posts aside from when such shade doesn’t establish a projection risk;

Steel or plastic banding will not be utilized as a top rail or mid-rail;

Manila or plastic (or other engineered) rope being utilized for top rails or mid-rails will be assessed by an able individual as often as possible as fundamental; and

Cross supporting is satisfactory instead of a mid-rail when the intersection point is between 20 – 30 crawls over the work stage or as a top rail when the intersection point is between 38 – 48 creeps over the work stage. The end focuses at every upstanding will be close to 48 inches.
