China wants to half scaffolding use by 2015 – KHL Group

China wants to half scaffolding use by 2015 – KHL Group:

China plans to half the use of scaffolding in the country by the end of 2015 – the final year of the current five year plan – by dramatically increasing the use of mechanised access, including aerial work platforms and mast climbing platforms.

The policy was described by Mr Li Shoulin, a research fellow at the China Academy of Building Research, during the most recent meeting of the Work Safety Committee, the organisation created by US equipment manufacturers Terex and Oshkosh alongside the American Chamber of Commerce in China (AmCham). The committee is lobbying for improved work safety practices in working at height and mining.
