Scaffolds address unique aspects of construction problems. Unlike conventional ladders, scaffolds are platforms that can be raised according to the needed height requirement for work on a given structure. Unlike ladders, scaffolds have more stability and balance, ensuring the safety of workers and securing the work needed to be done.
According to Safe Work Australia, 2596 workers died between the years 2002-2012 due to work-related accidents. In 2012, the share of this number was 223; 29 individuals (13 %) died from falling from a height. 8 of these workers fell from the roof of buildings.
