The Temporary Works Forum (TWf) has published guidance on the “Effective management of scaffolding to BS 5975: 2019”.

Document: TWf2020: 01, September 2020 offers advice on temporary works management procedures.

Additionally, it highlights the need for all of those involved to understand the roles, responsibilities and procedures in the effective management of scaffolding.

In fact, it covers the entire process, from concept and procurement through to assembly, inspection, alteration and removal of scaffolding.

The new guide is applicable to organisations and individuals involved in specifying, procuring, designing, constructing and managing scaffold.
