Scaffold Tower blown from roof in high winds

A 20ft scaffold tower nearly caused a major incident in Kendal last Friday. High winds appear to have blown the structure over from its location on top of a penthouse block of flats. Fortunately the tower landed on top of a lift shaft, rather than plummeting to the pavement below. It took a significant length of time to secure and rermove the tower from the ledge and thankfully noone was injured in the incident. A more detailed report can be found by clicking here

The incident serves as a powerful reminder to ensure structures are secured and that scaffolding ought to be inspected after any severe weather, prior to use. To find out how Good to Go Safety can help with your inspection routines please click here for details.
