CASE STUDY: How to significantly improve safety when working at height

Read about the project of Scafftag at Bancroft, where working at height is much safer now thanks to status tagging system and lockout devices.

With 150 directly employed staff working on fast track fit-outs at any one time across the South East, health and safety has to be a priority for mechanical and electrical services company Bancroft. With increasing legislation and pressure for companies to achieve excellence in this area, Bancroft wanted to improve business performance through better management of its equipment in terms of safety, maintenance and location tracking.

The solution was a visual tagging system from equipment status management specialists, Scafftag – A Brady company. The wide range of Scafftag tagging systems makes the latest status of equipment clearly visible, where it is needed most. The tags are attached to each item of equipment providing specific details of inspections, maintenance work and asset ID number and location. Removing the insert from the holder means that any item of equipment can be instantly put into Do Not Use status. This extra level of protection allows managers and employees to make informed decisions rather than risk making assumptions.

Clear visibility of equipment status at the point of use

By Brady

Increase inspection efficiency with Scafftag’s reliable holders and inserts that can communicate the safety status of any type of equipment at the point of use.

Scafftag holders and inserts can communicate best practice inspection procedures on the equipment that needs inspection. Both the holders and removable inserts are highly customisable and can support the standardisation of inspection procedures. A QR code can also be printed on the inserts or holders to activate a digital inspection flow via a smartphone and Safetrak software, complete with inspection planning management and automatic inspection report generation.

Clear communication at the point of use

When properly used and applied on equipment and in plain view, Scafftag Tags can always communicate the latest equipment status to anyone who wants to use a specific piece of equipment. Tags are available for almost any tool or equipment, including ladders, scaffolds, drills, vehicles and engines. Inspection records on the tag’s insert will show when equipment was considered fit for use. When equipment fails inspection, the inspector can remove the insert to show a clear ‘Do not use’ message on the tag’s holder. In this way, Scafftag helps prevent costly workplace accidents resulting from the use of unfit equipment.

Extremely robust and reliable

Holders and inserts are designed to last in extreme outdoor conditions. Holders are made out of ABS or Nylon and will rarely break. The polypropylene inserts can withstand water, oil and dirt while still being easy to write on. Both the holder and insert can resist prolongued UV exposure in order to stay legible in construction sites.
