When setting up Hydro-mobile scaffolds, special attention should be given to safety guidelines and your surroundings.  Take note of the following:

  • Ensure all exposed edges are protected via guard railing with top rails, mid rails and toe boards - if the potential for falling objects is present.   
  • Daily inspections should be conducted.
  • Appropriate tagging should be placed near the base to indicate if safe to use.
  • When erecting over a doorway or access point, caution tape or barriers should be placed around the scaffold near the doorway to indicate to all subcontractors not to use this access point.
