Safety & Compliance: Scaffold Ties and Guys

Scaffold Ties and Guys

Why do scaffolds needs to be tied or guyed?

OSHA 1926.451 (c) (1)

To prevent the scaffold from overturning, scaffolds must be tied using tension and compression ties or guyed to provide a wider base per OSHA standards.

Do not remove ties and guys until the scaffold is dismantled to the tie level.
