Scaffolding Inspector and Erector

Unread post by VeronicaH » 06 Mar 2018, 15:27

Hi there

I have read up on the question of whether or not a scaffolding Erector and Inspector may be the same person on a site - I can't find anything on this?
I have been told on more than one occasion that it is illegal?

Could you please clarify?

Thank you in advance :)

Hi Veronica

In my view there would be a conflict of interest. The one person should erect and the second one must ensure that it was correctly done.
