Objective of our company is to promote a safety culture that empowers all levels to engage and act as needed, in regards to safety.

Our goal is zero incidents, anything less is unacceptable. We feel an obligation to deliver a safe work environment, where the focus rests on the prevention of incidents not only on the job, but also away from work.
While providing scaffolding works we have used to take into account the following:
• Fall protection during both erection and use
• The scaffolding components' dead load and manageability
• Load-bearing capacity and stability
• Ergonomics of use
It is important to choose scaffolding of the lightest material possible.

When scaffolding or weather protection is erected or dismantled and the fall height is two metres or more, workers shall be protected against the risk of falling to a lower level.
First and foremost, scaffolding should be chosen, which can be mounted such that the guardrail, wholly or most of it, is already in place when one goes up to a higher level.
As a second choice, one should use a temporary railing system.
As a final choice, fall protection can be achieved by the worker's use of personal protective equipment.

Signs and symbols are used in a workplace to convey information to workers and visitors to the site. Being able to move or navigate around the workplace independently and safely to perform tasks can be critical to an individual’s success and productivity at work. There are a range of signs in the workplace that allow a person to move around safely and with confidence. Scaffolding signs are ideal when working with scaffolding, they give a clear messages and help prevent accidents in scaffolding zones.

Material for scaffolding and weather protection shall be carefully examined before each erection. Material and components with safetyrelated defects may not be used.
Such defects include:
• damaged components,
• components with rust or other corrosion, and
• wood material or components with rot, warping, or cracks.
It is especially important to check that the standards and components for working decks are of sound condition.

We ensure regular inspections to guarantee that it can safely and securely support the loads that may arise. The same applies for facades and other structures to which scaffolding must be anchored. The scaffolding must be able to be safely erected and used at the location in question.
Above all, it is important to check whether the parts of a building or other structure, which are affected by the scaffolding's load, are of sufficient strength and stability.

It is particularly important to check the strength when anchoring to facing bricks. It is important that it is clear how erection and dismantling is to be carried out so that fall risks are minimised, for example, where personal protective equipment is to be attached.
It is also important that the specific restrictions of use, such as maximum vertical or horizontal loads, are precisely specified in the instructions.
