  • Scaffold Is A Joke

    When I walk around Bunnings or Woolies I always take a look at their mobile scaffold. Now scaffold is a workplace health & safety item, which to me means it should be of the highest quality. Not from what I have seen. They are usually made from ali and made here in Australia. Worst welds ever. But tonight this repair I saw has to take the cake. I hope the welder hangs his head in shame.

    Bunnings probably got one of the welders off the shelf and got an employee to weld it.

    Good to see it already started to crack and the weld does not look old.

        G'day,
        That's a flash repair if I've ever seen one. It looks like a witchetty grub laying on the metal.

          Cold & no penetration. I have a habit. Of looking over the welds on anything I come across. Just a habit. If your forced to weld than you shouldn't be welding. This Guy doesn't appreciate his own work.

              Office Works had to tell the welder what was wrong.

                    If its local to you, maybe you can drop a card and a quote for a proper repair.

                      I'd be nervous of standing on that if it was taken down and flat on the floor lol.

                        I did not take photos of the original welds but they are not much better.
                        May be the welder works for a tinny builder during the week.

                            Here are some images from Bunning's scaffold.
                            You have to remember this is a safety issue. If someone falls from scaffold because of a bad weld the welder will be held criminally responsible.
