Scaffold lifting technique

At our Battersea PowerStation Project the scaffold contractor (QFS) has developed a lifting technique to provide a fail safe means of raising and lowering scaffold materials via a rope and wheel system.

The use of a full rolling hitch knot for tubes, and a timber hitch for boards has been demonstrated to the Project Team and is now part of the safe system of work.

Exclusion Zones still remain in place during lifting operations, but the likelihood of materials falling is greatly reduced.
