We have acted as expert witness in legal cases involving scaffolding collapse or misuse in recent times. In addition we have been asked to provide technical reports to determine cause of failure and potential reasoning behind it. Scaftec have worked as technical advisors for the HSE on scaffold collapses.
None of those cases have arisen from from designs Scaftec have worked on, and we have worked closely with companies to ensure they do not experience further collapses. We are happy to assist wherever we can, please do not hesitate to contact us.
