The Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations (2015), and Working at Height regulations (2005) have increased the requirement for scaffold design drawings and calculations as well as risk assessments and method statements for inclusion in site Health & Safety files:
“Unless a scaffold is a basic configuration described in recognised guidance e.g. NASC Technical Guidance TG20 for tube and fitting scaffolds or manufacturers’ guidance for system scaffolds, the scaffold should be designed by calculation, by a competent person, to ensure it will have adequate strength and stability”
