Lama menyepi....bukannya merajuk, tapi jammed dengan keja - kerja scaffolding.... insyallah, lepas nie wokeh....by the way, nak share satu soalan dari forum NRG.....share bersama....
Dear Encik Mohammad Zailan,
How're you doing? Would appreciate if you can advised me on the following issues,
1. Is it a mandatory that the scaffolder need to have attending a basic scaffolding
course prior can be allowed to involve with the erection of scaffolding?
Yup! Its clearly stated under BOWEC 1986 under regulation 74 where it clearly stated that "No scaffold shall be erected or altered or dismantled except under direct supervision of Designated Person" and under Scaffolder Registration guideline, only 1 competent scaffolder is allowed to get 'assistant' of 4 helpers. Few things you need to aware about:
1.1 Designated Person - Those who have completed the Basic Level Scaffolding Competency Course which include Frame, Tubular & Modular and off course pass and register to State DOSH within 1 year from attending the course. Lambat, sorry le...
1.2 Designated Person - Only meant for WARGANEGARA MALAYSIA!!! So, any of those foreigners yang claim that they are competent, you can say "Go Fly Kite!" Exceptional for some expatriate who do apply and approved to JKKP Putrajaya as competent scaffolder...tapi the word "Expatriate" dengan PATI beza yea....
1.3 Helpers - defined as helpers.....it means they are assigned to assist the scaffolder in erecting scaffold, not the other way..... but sometimes it also very confusing when the guideline sendiri meletakkan 4 helper untuk satu competent person! So....siapa sebenarnya yang pasang scaffold?
2. Can a person who have an expereience but have not atttened the scaffolding course
are allowed to involve in the erection of scaffolding?
As mentioned.....under the law, NO! seperti kes bawa kereta..... pengalaman dah 15 tahun, tapi lesen takda...boleh ke? Mungkin boleh, selagi belum kena tangkap, tapi sekali kena tangkap...atau worst, accident? Sape kena jawab? Yang pastinya, SHO jelas kena bertanggungjawab, since antara salah satu tugas SHO adalah memastikan OYK menjalankan kerja di kawasan tersebut!
Lastly, please advised on Dosh requirement on competency for scaffolder basic requirement. Looking to hear from you soon.
I dont really understand on the question of requirement, but generally any temporary structure more than 3m height which can cause injury when fall must be erected, modified or dismantled by competent person, and the level of Basic - Intermediate - Advance has its own scope of work! The understanding of the duties of the structure, the load it can sustain, the strength, rigidity and even environmental factor must be taken into considerations. Last but not least, the inspection to be done at every 7 days by competent scaffolder as well (Not the same person). PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY SCAFFOLDER CAN ISSUE / REVOKE SCAFFTAG! Even a REGISTERED SHO CANNOT REVOKE or ISSUE Scaff Tag, its UNLAWFUL!
