In the construction industry, temporary works, especially fixed metal scaffolding, represent the type of temporary structure necessary for the construction of the work and to ensure preventive actions aimed at guaranteeing the safety of workers in the workplace.

Abstract

In the construction industry, temporary works, especially fixed metal scaffolding, represent the type of temporary structure necessary for the construction of the work and to ensure preventive actions aimed at guaranteeing the safety of workers in the workplace. All this requires a technical-organizational process able to guarantee careful planning, problem solving, content processing and an approach able to reduce the risks present in the construction process. In this context the following work is born with the intent of deepening the study of special high-altitude scaffolding which require particular requirements and great ingenuity for what concerns the design and organization. The goal is to define a valid design approach that aims to combine structural aspects with those of operator safety, which includes: on the one hand, the design of the scaffolding in operating conditions and in the assembly / dismantling phases; on the other hand to its correct use through the use of effective tools for the training of employees, monitoring and control in progress. The aim was first pursued through a preliminary investigation of the regulatory aspects, then an analysis of the knowledge and characteristics of the different types of scaffolding, an in-depth analysis of special applications for work with particular constraints, the design of a real scaffolding case suspended to high altitude through an FEM analysis, and finally, the identification of hypotheses of implementation and improvement of the control system for a correct assembly and use of the scaffolding through a new technological scenario.
