Scaffolding safety tags are an important resource for the use of any type of scaffold. Scaffolds can be the source of multiple types of hazards in the workplace, including falls and falling objects. By tagging equipment, workers can know if scaffolding has been inspected or is safe to use.
Scaffolding safety tags are typically used after an inspection of the scaffold. The most common system of tagging involves using red tags for unsafe or incomplete scaffolds, and green tags for scaffolds that are ready for use.
