Abstract
This report presents a review of the available literature on scaffolds and is the third of several inter-related studies of a scaffolding research program at the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). This study was sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to improve scaffolding system performance and reduce the work related injuries and losses. A computerized search of the published literature was performed and technical information that could serve to upgrade existing codes and standards for scaffolds or offer direction to future analytical research has been presented. This information concerned the design, erection, operation or maintenance of scaffolding systems. Appendix A presents the 22 types of scaffolds under study. In addition, U.S. scaffold patent claims and the manufacturers' literature was reviewed and discussed. Appendix B presents selective model analyses of scaffolds.
