Scaffolding is widely used in all types of construction and building projects as a temporary structure that allows all types of repairs and maintenance work to be carried out on the outside of a building.
Because it is a temporary structure, it has to be erected and disabled each time it is used, which means that there are several potential hazards from a health and safety point of view that have to be taken into consideration and dealt with accordingly.
Although it's difficult to imagine why given modern design standards, people used to add "popcorn" treatment to their ceilings to try and improve the look and feel of their homes. This kind of material was very popular, and if you have bought a period home and intend to renovate it, you may certainly notice its presence within. Yet before you get your tools out and roll up your sleeves to remove, think about the potential risk.
If you want a project to run successfully, you must have the right people overseeing that project. Managing any project is about more than being willing to take on the job. The people in charge must have sufficient time to devote to the job, and they must have adequate experience and knowledge to guide the project through to completion. Nowhere are the challenges of project management more obvious than in industrial construction.
