Scaffolding is an essential structure for many types of construction projects. Almost any tall building is covered in scaffolding during construction so crews can reach upper levels that a ladder cannot safely access. However, workers and bystanders may be at risk of serious injury when the structure is unsound.

Causes of Scaffolding Collapse
Any dangerous condition could potentially lead to a scaffold accident. Some of the possible causes of scaffolding collapse include:
- Poorly constructed scaffold
- Use of weak or old materials
- Lack of maintenance
- Poor inspection
- Improperly secured scaffold
- Defective or missing brakes on suspended scaffolds
- Defective or missing fall safety systems
When any safety aspect of a scaffold is overlooked, a serious accident could result.
