Painting & Decorating Question

Scaffolding - legal requirements

My property is leasehold and coming due for external repair works, which generally is just a bit of re-painting here and there. It is a standalone apartment above garages - no property above me. Is there a requirement therefore for minor painting repair works for scaffolding to be erected, in accordance with HSE?

Best Answer

if you want to go by the book on health and saftey then scaffolding would be required, but most builder decorators will use a ladder for this type of work
