A safe Working Environment for Scaffolders
Many construction works are inconceivable without modern scaffoldings, both for exterior and interior works. Specific situations and working heights require particular safety measures and trainings of the staff.
Workplace safety and the prevention of accidents and illnesses are a top priority for Lindner Group. For ths reason, Lindner Gerüstbau GmbH (Scaffolding specialist) hosted its annual training on the topic "Safe working and rescuing on elevated workplaces". It took place in Burghausen on 7 July 2017 on the occasion of a current construction project. The legally required risk assessment and the according measures for accident prevention are major parts in occupational safety concepts.
The safety of the staff is ensured by situational instructions on theory and practice as well as additional personnel that is trained for self-rescue. In case of an emergency, the rescue of persons with personal protective equipment against falls requires particular care and knowledge of the techniques to be used, the procedures and assessments of each situation. Lindner Gerüstbau ensures that its staff are medically examined and physically capable of undertaking such rescues.
