Scaffolding and temporary working platforms are sometimes used to aid a safe system of work in relation to working at height. They are most commonly used to create walkways for personnel and flat working platforms for personnel and plant. There are typically two approaches to scaffold construction: traditional tube and fitting scaffolds and system scaffolds and this guidance recognises that both basic and complex scaffolds can be constructed using both approaches.
