Do I have to use advanced guardrails when putting up a scaffold?

No, you don’t have to use an advanced guardrail but you do have to prevent a person falling from the scaffold while it is being erected, altered or dismantled. The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) document SG4 gives details of the different methods that can be used to prevent falls when erecting, altering and dismantling scaffolding.
