This research project is undertaken to measure the degree of safety in the use of scaffolds
in Malaysia and to correlate safe scaffold practice to construction management and
labors. Fall from height is the leading cause of death for construction workers. Accident
that relates to scaffold due to collapse or fall from scaffolding is the second leading cause
of fall averaging 32% in five years 1999-2003-[NIOSH, 2000].This study focus on
accident that relate to five types of scaffolding that are commonly employed in
construction site. The methodologies used in this research are interviews with the people
involved in the construction site and questionnaires which are distributed to the
construction management and workers. Literature review discovers that adequate
training, competency of erecting and dismantling scaffold and sufficient inspection and
maintenance of scaffold can prevent accident.
