Scaffolding Company in Fulham | Health & Safety

The work we undertake as a scaffolding company comes with certain inherent risks. Some of the major causes of injury to scaffolding contractors include being hit by falling object and incorrect handling of materials. As such, scaffolding companies have a legal duty to provide adequate information, instruction, training and supervision to ensure their scaffolding contractors perform their work in a safe manner. At McQ Scaffolding Ltd, we treat Health & Safety in Fulham, and any other location, with paramount importance. From the provision of quality safety netting to rigorous site inspections ahead of crane hire services, we create safe environments for projects of any kind.


On this page, we explore some of the ways our scaffolding company adheres to the latest HSE regulations.

Industry Standards


All our scaffolding, safety netting and crane hire options fully comply with the latest industry policies. Whether erecting, dismantling, altering or supervising scaffolding operations in Fulham or anywhere else in the South East, we ensure compliance with the highest of standards.


Our scaffolding contractors currently follow these industry regulations:


  • Working at Height Regulations 2005
  • TG20:13 (Good Practice Guidance for Tube and Fitting Scaffolding)
  • BS EN 12811 (European Standards for Scaffolding)
  • SG4:15 (Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations)


Personal Protective Equipment


Scaffolding contractors and other workers on site, such as operators performing crane hire services, must wear the appropriate PPE to carry out their job safely. As a scaffolding company, we not only supply this equipment, we also maintain it correctly. Personal protective equipment (PPE) helps to prevent accidents and health problems when working with scaffolding and associated products like safety netting.


Examples of PPE commonly used by our personnel include:


  • Hard Hats
  • Eye Protection
  • Hearing Protection
  • Safety Boots/Shoes
  • High Visibility Vests/Jackets
  • Harness/Fall Arrest Devices


Safety Netting


Objects falling off a scaffold can seriously injure or kill anyone working below or members of the public passing by. In order to avoid such scenarios, we wrap safety netting around scaffolds to help minimise the risk of falling items. Safety netting provides many benefits for our clients in Fulham, including:


  • Protection for people underneath high-level work areas from falling tools and materials
  • Improved confidence for workers at high levels, allowing them to work more efficiently
  • A reduction in the distance a person can fall from a high position on a scaffold


Our scaffolding company remains one of the most trusted in the South East. We pride ourselves on our safety record to date and take every step necessary to preserve it. From basic scaffolding systems to those with safety netting and crane hire services, McQ Scaffolding Ltd always delivers unrivalled safety.
