How can I ensure my homemade scaffolding is safe? How can I ensure my homemade scaffolding is safe?
Scaffolding is needed when working on an interior or exterior job around a house or building and you need the freedom to move around the area in a way that a ladder does not allow. Many people elect to build their own scaffolding. Homemade scaffolding is as safe as any other scaffolding if you have taken care to place enough screws and bolts to hold the structure firm and straight when you are on it. The wood for homemade scaffolding needs to be heavy enough to withstand the weight of the person and any tools or building supplies put on it. You can purchase plans for scaffolding that gives you the exact requirements and instructions. These plans are safe to use and very exact.
