Why You Need a Site Scaffold Alarm

When scaffolding is up on your building site, your equipment and your client’s possessions can be at risk from vandalism and theft. And if you don’t have a scaffold alarm installed, or the appropriate insurance providers haven’t been notified that scaffolding has been erected, policies can become null and void.

It’s not just insurance that can be affected by not having an alarm on your scaffolding. When it’s up, anyone and everyone has access to floors, rooms and roofs which can have devastating effects. The theft of equipment and vandalism of property can be extremely costly, and cause hold ups on big projects that lead to downtime and loss of revenue. Naturally, this doesn’t just apply on building and renovation projects in city centre locations, but also in rural areas too.

Scaffolding can be a huge safety hazard, especially to youngsters looking for somewhere to explore. When none of your workers are on site, there’s no one to stop people clambering up the scaffolding boards ‘for fun’ and having a nasty accident. In these situations, an alarm system can be the deterrent you need to protect your site and potentially save lives.
