Accidents happen anywhere, any time
You never know when you might have an accident that causes a personal injury. For example innocent passers-by could easily have been seriously injured when a scaffolding tower fell over in Streatham High Street.
Scaffolding tower erected to facilitate cleaning process
The scaffolding tower had been erected to facilitate the cleaning of a building facing the high street. The cleaning process consisted of shot blasting, steam, and jet washing. To protect members of the public, polythene sheeting was attached to the scaffolding to prevent debris falling onto passers-by, and passing traffic.
Scaffolding tower not secured to the building
Unfortunately, the scaffold structure hadn’t been attached to the building, and the plastic sheeting acted like a sail when the wind got up. The result is that the unsecured scaffold tower fell onto the pavement, and into the street. Miraculously no one was injured. Luckily the fall didn’t happen during the day, but it could easily have been another story, and one with disastrous consequences.
Basic omission in health and safety procedure
The investigation that followed, carried out by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive), found that the scaffold erection didn’t meet minimum safety standards. The dangers associated with scaffolding are well understood throughout the industry, and not securing the structure properly was an elementary error.
The scaffolding company responsible was found to be in breach of both the Work at Height Regulations 2005, and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. They were fined £5,000 and instructed to pay £500 worth of costs.
