Third party inspection of scaffolds is very important for the purpose of minimising the risk of an accident and ensuring that the scaffold meets the legal standards. Independent inspection of the scaffolds is a legal requirement and it also helps in liability management in case of an accident and negligence claims. Inspection of the scaffolding is also crucial for the safety of the employees of the contractor who are working on the scaffolding.
It is important for the companies that have hired contractors for constructing the scaffolds to get the scaffold structure inspected by a qualified independent inspector who is hired by them. This will ensure that the company can rely on the inspection report of the inspector.
