Toolbox talk on scaffold design

Trade association launches new compliance tool for scaffolders and managers

The TG20:08 Toolbox Talk presentation has been developed to ensure site operatives have been trained in the fundamental differences to basic scaffold design according to TG20:08 (as opposed to previously BS5973).

The presentation has been designed to last no longer than 20 minutes and covers changes to load classes/duty, boarded lifts, façade/sway bracing, plan bracing, ties, building façades and the responsibilities of employers and management.
