Toolbox Talk Testing Procedures for Scaffold Planks Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Testing Procedure for Scaffold Planks is a toolbox talk safety app that prompts users in a safety talk to discuss testing procedures for scaffold planks.
How does it work?
Testing scaffolding that is to serve as a work platform involves placing the scaffold planks between two blocks, having workers weighing a combined 325 lbs. or higher stand on the center of the plank, and ensure that the plank doesn't bend enough to touch the ground, that it doesn't creak, and that after removing the test load, the planks return to their normal position. If these testing procedures are properly followed, the hazards surrounding the use of scaffolding planks are largely mitigated.
