Scaffolding is an integral part of construction and maintenance work, providing access and support for workers at elevated heights. At Tiger Supplies, we provide a wide range of Scafftags to ensure the safety and compliance of your scaffold systems.

Scafftags are specialised tags designed specifically for scaffold systems. They are typically attached to the scaffolding structure and provide important information regarding its safety and condition. 

Scafftags serve as visual indicators, helping to communicate essential details to workers and inspectors. The primary purpose of scafftags is to enhance safety and promote compliance within scaffold systems. They fulfil the following functions:

1. Safety Information

Scafftags display vital safety information, such as load capacities, maximum height, and inspection records. They allow you to understand the limitations and requirements of the scaffold system, ensuring safe working practices.

2. Visual Communication

By using colour-coded systems, scafftags provide quick visual indicators of the scaffold's status. This helps you identify whether the scaffold is safe to use, undergoing inspection, or requires attention.

3. Inspection Documentation

Scafftags contain spaces for recording inspection details, including dates, names of inspectors, and comments. This documentation helps ensure regular inspections are conducted, and any issues or concerns are promptly addressed.

4. Regulatory Compliance

Scafftags assist in meeting regulatory requirements and industry standards. They provide evidence of compliance. These visual tags demonstrate that proper safety measures are in place for the scaffold system.

Benefits of Scafftags

The use of scafftags offers several benefits. They contribute to a safer working environment and improved scaffold management:

  • Enhanced Safety Awareness

Scafftags promote adherence to safety protocols, minimising the risk of accidents or injuries.

  • Improved Inspection Process

They streamline the inspection process by providing a standardised format for recording inspection details. You can easily document your findings, ensuring consistency and accuracy in evaluating scaffold safety.

  • Quick Visual Assessment

Their design allows for a quick visual assessment of the scaffold’s status. You can identify if the scaffold is safe to use or if any specific precautions or actions are required.

  • Preventive Maintenance

Scafftags facilitate a proactive approach to maintenance. Regular inspections and timely repairs or replacements can be carried out based on the information provided on the tags, reducing the likelihood of scaffold failures or hazards.

Tips for the effective use of Scafftags

To ensure the effective implementation of scafftags, consider the following guidelines:

  • Ensure that all information on the scafftags is clearly printed and legible. This includes safety instructions, load capacities, inspection records, and any specific warnings or precautions.
  • Attach scafftags securely to a visible location on the scaffold structure. Place them at accessible heights, making it easy for workers and inspectors to read and review the information.
  • Regularly inspect the condition of the scafftags themselves. Replace any damaged or faded tags to maintain their visibility and effectiveness. Remove outdated or irrelevant tags to avoid confusion.
  • Conduct regular inspections of the scaffold system as per regulatory requirements. Promptly address any identified issues or concerns.
  • Provide training to workers on the importance of scafftag tagging, tagging systems and how to interpret the information displayed. Increase awareness about the significance of scaffold safety when working at height and the role of scafftags in ensuring compliance.
