Scaffolding, albeit used in every country globally, the quality and safety standards differ immensely.
Not all countries are as highly regulated as the scaffolding and access industry is within the UK, the UK and the US are among the most highly regulated countries there is – when it comes to health and safety.
British Standards = British Quality.
Many companies and contractors working on projects overseas often look back at home for safety of supply and diversity in solutions. British scaffolding is commonly dispatched to global locations, chosen over sourcing the supply locally due to the far higher and stringent safety standards all UK scaffolding conforms to.
Many overseas countries don’t have near as many safety standards or working procedures in place as the UK does.
Regularly within the international scaffolding and access industry we hear of public outcries due to severe lack of safety, supervision and accountability within many far east countries. We hear and read of horrendous death tolls alongside a very lackadaisical attitude sadly adopted by many overseas contractors and companies.
It’s not surprising, safety of supply is often sought after from the UK.
We’ve seen of late a huge demand in Malta with many people of power, Maltese and companies from the UK undertaking large projects amidst the mass of construction currently underway within Malta.
Similarly, Israel are in the midst of a public outcry due to the harrowing death tolls that just keep rising within Israeli construction sites – due to lack of safety and procedures. Many contractors have been sought from the UK, to take control of construction sites under closure orders.
