Its a nightmare trying to get a good standard on your render when working off bad scaffold. I always take a scaffold spanner out knowing I will need it, my boyfriend (Jace the Ace) tells me I shouldnt be so fussy, but you know what girls are like

Its a brushed under the carpet topic I think, Scaffolders need to put the frame up safely which hinders us , we need to adjust it to do our job which is technically wrong. that said I have adjusted nearlly every scaffold I have worked on and never been kicked off site or had one collapse.

I alter scaffold every week been doing so for fourty years not been chucked of a site yet.

the thing is though mate your obviously experienced and competent. the problem comes when some moran comes along starts doing something gets distracted or is incompetent etc and someone else suffers.

the thing is this is were h and s stinks you should be able to notify site gaffer you need altering etc and then it gets done and approved for everyones safety.
