OSHA and SAIA develop mobile scaffold tip sheet
By Lindsey Anderson19 August 2013
Through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA) Alliance, a new Rolling Towers/Mobile Scaffold: Inspection, Maintenance, and Use Tip Sheet has been developed. The new tip sheet is designed to assist workers in the proper inspection and maintenance of rolling tower/mobile scaffold.
"The publication of the rolling tower/mobile scaffold tip sheet is a significant step forward in the industry's goal of getting crucial safety information into the hands of the person who requires it most, the worker," said Marty Coughlin, SAIA president. "The OSHA Alliance process is an essential component of industry outreach, and the SAIA's Alliance program has produced a substantial amount of quality safety information. The scaffold and access industry can only benefit from this process, there is no down side to prevention of accidents, and credit must go to both the OSHA and SAIA's Alliance team, who have combined to produce a concise and productive process."
This tip sheet adds to the collection of complimentary OSHA and SAIA tools for scaffold and access workers. The documents are available for download on the SAIA's website, http://www.saiaonline.org/OSHAAlliance.
