Stucco scaffolding makes stucco work safer and more efficient when applying stucco higher than a worker can easily reach from the ground. Erecting and using scaffolds takes planning and careful implementation to make the work safe and productive.
The basic parts of a scaffold system used by Nurse Stucco include:
- Scaffold jacks
- Stacking pins
- Leveling legs or base plates
- Access ladders
- Scaffold boards
- Various clamps and pins for assembly
Depending on your location, government regulations may require scaffolds to be braced or supported before use. OSHA requires such bracing when a scaffold’s height to width ratio is 4 to 1 or greater. For example, a scaffold that is 5 feet wide has to be secured if it is 20 feet tall, or higher.
