Must I use a tag system on a Scaffold?
Although tag systems are not a legal requirement, the law does say that an inspection is a requirement especially, if the scaffolding erectors falls more than 2 metres or more and the issue of a report by a competent person, on a completion and weekly thereafter.
However, a risk assessment may find the need for more frequent inspection of scaffolding. The inspection may also be a required after bad weather and always after any modification.
Using a visible tag system may supplement the inspection reports, but it is a useful way of ensuring those who need to use the scaffolding know that it is safe to use on the construction project.
