LADDERS AND SCAFFOLDS:

 

Two Causey Engineers have Certificates from the Scaffold Training Institute. Both have completed the course to attain the designation “competent/person builder” for Frame, Tube and Clamp, and System scaffolding. Both have considerable field experience in construction. They both have special knowledge of wood properties for wooden ladders.  This high degree of scaffold and ladder knowledge and experience is available now in a Causey Associate trained in Forensic Engineering work to support your case.

The pictures below represent some of the specific types of work and processes in this industry.

Scaffolds:

Elevated catwalks, scaffolds, stairs, ladders, and openings abound in all renovation and new construction sites.  There are general safely regulations that address most situations, and specific regulations developed by certain states for some special industry situations.

 

 

Here are several examples of how scaffolds were built to suit the need.

There is a set of practical regulations for scaffolding, based on a body of engineering knowledge and experience, utilizing mostly standard components. 

 

 

Nowadays, manlifts and boom buckets replace some scaffolding and ladders.
