Access scaffolding is the most important element of plant for building, civil engineering and structural engineering contractors. In fact a building or structure cannot be constructed to a height of more than two metres without platforms to work from. These platforms have to be constructed on the site in the minimum of time but nevertheless backed up by accurate calculations and design details. Access Scaffolding brings together for the first time all the elements of scaffolding, providing a comprehensive and unique guide to the best practice in scaffolding, its engineering properties and the hazards involved. The book covers the very wide varieties of structure which have to be built and used in practice, including suspended and completed structures. Diagrammatic details of the commonest types are featured. Access Scaffolding is a unique and indispensible handbook on the subject for contractor's field and design staff, safety inspectors of statutory bodies, and structural, civil and building consulting engineers. It is also a useful resource for students of structural and civil engineering and building degree courses.... 46 see also hazards lap tubes 6 lapping 43, 44 lashings 197, 232-3 lateral displacement 53 lateral forces 6, 27, 28, 29, ... 130 horizontal 120, 134a6 impact 71, 112 maximum suspended 112 pedestrian 127 power scaffolds 147 snow 17, 253 ... 34, 38 normal facades 35 notices 43 one man work cage 118 oscillations 39 outboard part 110, 112 outside 6 outside ... 5 safety factors 208-9 relaxation of 79, 209 safety gates 74 safety manuals 161a2 scaffold 7 badly built 156 boards 44, anbsp;...
