Difference Between Ticketed Scaffolders and Scaffold Labourers

Both ticketed scaffolders and scaffold labourers know their way around scaffold but there are a few key differences between them which are outlined below.

Scaffold Labourers

  • These are not just labourers – they are workers who have experience assisting scaffolders specifically.
  • Knowledge of scaffold components.
  • Ability to securely and effectively stack gear.
  • Read and feed what components the scaffolders need next.
  • Be able to carry scaffold safely and efficiently.
  • Will have as a minimum their white card, working at heights / confined space tickets when required.
  • Not suitable for scaffold erection.

Ticketed Scaffolders

  • These are qualified and experienced workers who have as a minimum their Basic Scaffold (SB), Intermediate Scaffold (SI) or Advanced Scaffold (SA)
  • Have received training on how to correctly and safely erect a scaffold.
  • Will also have their white card and, in most circumstances, working at heights and confined space tickets too.
  • Be able to carry scaffold safely and efficiently.
  • Depending on the scaffold erected you will need specific tickets for the job at hand. For more information on what requirements you need check out SafeWork Guidelines.

Types of Scaffolding Tickets - Basic Scaffolding - Intermediate Scaffolding - Advanced Scaffolding

Types of Scaffolding Tickets

There are three types of scaffolding tickets which are explained below.

Basic scaffolding (SB) which consists of scaffolding work involving:

  • modular or prefabricated scaffolds
  • cantilevered materials hoist with a maximum working load of 500 kg
  • ropes and gin wheels
  • safety nets and static lines
  • bracket scaffolds (tank and formwork)

Intermediate Scaffolding (SI) which includes all basic scaffolding work plus scaffolding connected with the use and operation of:

  • cantilevered crane loading platforms
  • cantilevered and spurred scaffolds
  • barrow ramps and sloping platforms
  • perimeter safety screens and shutters
  • mast climbers
  • tube and coupler scaffolds (including tube and coupler covered ways and gantries)

Advanced scaffolding (SA) needed for all intermediate scaffolding work plus scaffolding connected with the use and operation of:

  • cantilevered hoists
  • hung scaffolds, including scaffolds hanging from tubes, wire ropes or chains
  • suspended scaffolds

What Our Scaffold Labour Hire Won’t Do

While we supply scaffold labourers and scaffolders to projects, this is primarily for companies that already have scaffold designs in place and even have their scaffolders on the project.

  • We do not design scaffold. Our scaffold labourers and scaffolders are not there to run the scaffolding aspect of your job, more so to complement your existing team and provide some extra manpower to help you complete your project.
  • We do not move other scaffold companies scaffolding on site.
  • We do not supply any scaffold equipment however we are more than happy to recommend some companies.
  • We do not tag scaffold or provide handover certificates.
