Rolling scaffolding

Rolling scaffolding more than 3 metres tall must only be erected, altered and dismantled by people who have completed a special 1-day scaffolding training course.

A check will be carried out prior to erection of the rolling scaffolding to ensure that all parts are present and are whole and undamaged. Defective and damaged scaffolding parts will be disposed of.

Usage instructions in Danish must be available on site. This must specify the permitted flat load and spot load. The usage instructions will be handed out to employees together with specific instructions relating to the task in question.

The usage instructions must state when and how the scaffolding is to be fitted with supporting legs.

Erection, alteration and dismantling

Follow the supplier’s assembly instructions when erecting and dismantling rolling scaffolding. Assembly instructions must always be available when erecting rolling scaffolding.

The base must be even and sufficiently load-bearing.
Rolling scaffolding must be vertical and not be able to tip.

Rolling scaffolding must be fitted with steps or ladders to be used when staff have to climb it. The access opening must be at least 0.4 x 0.6 m in size, and it must be fitted with hinged hatches or sliding hatches. The hatches must be closed when people are working on the floor.

There must always be railings from a height of 2 metres. There must also be railings on lower scaffolding if there is a particular risk of falling or if a fall to the base would be particularly hazardous. Railings comprise a hand rail at a height of 1 metre, a knee rail at a height of 0.5 metres and a footboard at min. 0.15 m.

The work platform must completely fill the scaffolding both lengthwise and widthwise. The floor must not be able to tip or move, and the wheels must be locked.

The rolling scaffolding must not be secured to other building elements or structures. If it needs to be secured, fixed scaffolding must be used instead of rolling scaffolding.

Working on rolling scaffolding

All wheels must be braked when the scaffolding is in use. The brakes must be easy to operate without using tools.

There must be no people on the scaffolding while it is being moved.

Never use boxes, ladders or other equipment to achieve extra working height.
