Can you imagine putting your life at risk by climbing this scaffold? Not only are workers lives placed at risk, but so are the public.

We can never underestimate the importance of complying with safety standards and regulations especially when it comes to equipment, tools and machinery used in construction which could present a potential threat not only to workers on site but to the general public as well.
