    Default 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.

    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.
