Unauthorised Scaffolding Access

HSE issues Safety Alert during School holidays on the dangers of Unauthorised Scaffold Access.

The UK has seen a heatwave in the lead up to school summer holidays and we have another heatwave due. The Health & Safety Executive issued a safety alert advising those in control of construction work involving scaffolding and ladders to ensure appropriate measures are put in place to stop members of the public, and especially young people, from climbing scaffolding and ladders. Scaffold Safety Signs are an ideal method to alert the public to the dangers of unauthorised scaffold access.

Scaffolding can look like a tempting playground to young people who have time on their hands during the school holidays. Unfortunately unauthorised access can have serious consequences and results in a fall from height are not uncommon.

Site safety signs play an important role in alerting members of the public to dangers on construction sites. Spectrum Industrial design, manufacture and supply a comprehensive range of Safety Signs.
