Scaffolding fasteners Description
considerably longer than is need when the nut has been tightened. This excess length is required to allow the clamp half to be opened even while the nut is retained on the screw. To do so, the screw and nut arrangement engages a slot in the clamp half. This excess length of screw then protrudes into the area around the scaffolding system where it can cause a considerable hazard to people and equipment. For example, an operative walking pass the clamp can snag a part of their body or a part of their equipment on the screw, causing direct injury or indirect injury, perhaps when a loose strap catches on the screw and pulls the operative off balance, or causes an item of equipment to fall towards the ground where it could hit another operative but also at least damage the equipment and other equipment/supplies on the ground. A falling operative could hit one of these clamps in particular the protruding screw and cause considerable harm to him/herself. Furthermore, over time the end of the screw can become damaged and sharp edges or burrs can be generated which further increase the harm that this excess of screw length can inflict on an operative. A member of the public walking past or underneath a scaffolding assembly can inadvertently catch himself on the protruding screw and the responsible authority (operator) must consequently spend a considerable amount of time assessing and mitigating the hazards caused by scaffolding clamps where the public may need to come close to scaffolding. A system which mitigates such a hazard from the start may therefore confer considerable time savings and hazard-related savings on the operator.
