Understanding the Danger of Scaffolds

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), more than 50 fatalities and 4,500 injuries a year are caused by collapsed or failed scaffolding.1 In another study from the Bureau, it was discovered that 72 percent of workers injured in a scaffolding accident attributed their accident to the planking/support giving way, slipping, or being struck by a falling object.

Consider the following statistics from that same BLS study:

  • 25 percent of workers injured received no scaffold safety training
  • 77 percent of scaffolds involved did not have guardrails
  • An estimated 50 lives could be saved annually by compliance with OSHA standards

What Are the Common Causes of Scaffolding Accidents?

  • Improper use of the scaffolding
  • Incorrect installation of the scaffolding
  • Defective parts on the scaffolding2
  • Improperly maintaining the scaffolding
