Training and qualifications

Our company has specific skills and experience when it comes to scaffolding and provides on-the-job training for our scaffolders through apprenticeships. This training consists of working under the guidance of experienced staff and taking written exams. It includes learning how to construct equipment safely and physically and becoming familiar with the materials and installation techniques. Some vocational and community colleges also offer instruction and can facilitate apprenticeship programs and the required training hours to become certified. Although there are no formal entry requirements for scaffolders. Anyone considering a career in the industry would be well advised to obtain GCSE qualifications (or equivalent) in mathematics and English. Suppose you want to start your career as a scaffolder. In that case, you could study for a Level 1 Certificate in Construction Skills or a Level 2 Certificate in Construction Operations to get you started.

Skills and attributes

Scaffolders are expected to be well-organised and detail-oriented. Those who work in this field must be physically fit and have good manual dexterity. This is to load heavy materials onto trucks and operate various machinery. It’s also important that the scaffolders have an eye for danger, such as nearby power lines, to avoid any mishaps. They also need a good grasp of math to calculate the dimensions of the scaffolds they are building. Work environments include buildings, warehouses, and ship ports where scaffold builders are employed. They’re often on the go, going to various places and working in all kinds of conditions. Swansea scaffolders typically work in teams and under supervision. They may be required to work evenings and weekends on occasion. Wearing safety glasses and other protective gear is the norm for these workers. As a precaution, they may wear earplugs in the vicinity of loud machinery.

Emphasis on health and safety

When it comes to the long list of amazing abilities and attributes that are necessary to work as scaffolders, one of the most important is rigorous training in health and safety. Scaffolding frames are their job to be up and removed in a safe and efficient manner. They need to know everything from which different weights scaffolding holds to how to inspect scaffolding after bad weather. This enables construction workers to finish tasks more securely and productively. If they weren’t available, construction workers would have no choice but to finish the project using rickety ladders. But this puts their safety and reputation as professionals in jeopardy. To complete your training and become a scaffolder requires a significant investment of time and effort.

​Diverse qualifications and experience

Each on our team is different, and each has unique qualifications. The scaffolding in Swansea decision makers always prefer applicants who have completed an apprenticeship and worked in the field for several years. Our priority is to give the best quality of service we have.
