Timber frame construction scaffolds are not covered in the NASC TG20:13 guidance, and so require specific designs to be created for each scaffold erected. While working on timber frame scaffolds we work in accordance with NASC safety guidance SG28:17.
Special consideration has to be given to the stability of the scaffold structure throughout the various stages of the building erection sequence, giving appropriate access to the various trades that will use the scaffold to complete their work. Internal edge protection will normally have to be provided, with further consideration on the use of inside bords and how these will be altered as the work progresses.
