Explaining Safety Scaffolding UK

These figures were released in a safety report, a document which analyses accidents and injuries stats for all scaffolders and workers on a Birmingham site.

Another fantastic statistic revealed that 99% of all employed operatives went through the whole of 2019 injury-free. For the 7th year in a row. However, Slips, trips and falls accounted for the majority of reported incidents – 28 in total.

This is now the 15th year in a row that slips, trips and falls have been the main cause of injury to operatives. This accounts for 21% of injuries in 2019.

Ricki Grenfell, owner and director of RG Scaffolding Birmingham, commented: “The 2020 Safety Report demonstrates in no uncertain terms that our scaffolders are incredibly safe, and justifies the decision taken by an increasing number of main contractors to specify for their scaffolding requirements.”
