New factsheets available on tube and coupler scaffold safety: “Planning and Design” and “Erection and Use”
Posted - Nov 18, 2014

Two new OSHA fact sheets – “Tube and Coupler Scaffold Planning and Design” (PDF*) and “Tube and Coupler Scaffold Erection and Use” (PDF*) – are now available to help employers protect construction workers using this type of scaffold on the job. Workers building scaffolds are at risk for serious injury from falls and tip-overs, being struck by falling tools and other hazards, and electrocution from energized power lines. Before starting any scaffold project, employers should conduct a hazard assessment to ensure the safety of workers. For more information on scaffolding, visit OSHA’s scaffolding safety page.
