This week the meeting between Baltic Scaffolders Association and The State Labour Inspectorate took place in Vilnius.
The current situation on construction sites was discussed. Scaffolding are often installed without complying with manufacturer’s instructions or safety regulations. Often, such structures not only endanger the lives of the installers themselves, but also endanger others.
“We are constantly striving to raise the qualifications of our inspectors. Scaffolding is one of those areas where we have seen a remarkable improvement in recent years, which is why there is a need to deepen the knowledge of the inspectors in this area. Falling from the heights, meanwhile, remains one of the greatest risks at work, so all possible and appropriate preventive measures are particularly relevant, ” – Jonas Gricius Chief State Labor Inspector of the Republic of Lithuania.
We were talking of Lithuanian Construction Association initiative system STATREG helping to achieve the goals for safety.
