Homemade tower

6. July 2018 | Comments (1)

Spotted in Coleshill, Birmingham in the UK last month a man who has built his own scaffold to carry out work on the outside of a restaurant.

While it clearly isn’t the safest form of access equipment, he does appear to have done a reasonable job so far. A lot will depend on how the platform is finally set up – it is clearly a dangerous affair as it presently stands, but it does look as though he has at least allowed for a rear guardrail. While leaning the ladder against it to reach the platform is also not best practice.

Wood Scaffold
Not the worst example, but far from kosher

Add to that the fact that it is set up on the pavement/sidewalk and close to the road. Obviously, time is not something in short supply, otherwise this would be an expensive solution compare to renting in a tower for a day.

In the words of our correspondent: “Why hire expensive scaffolding when you can just knock your own death trap up? ‘LOL’ but seriously what a moron.”

Perhaps a tad harsh, but while it is not the worst example we have seen, it goes into our Death Wish Series.

Have a safe weekend.

What's the problems, it's seems sturdy enough.
