For all of you who ship and receive material, you should read this. Especially if you are in charge of re-renting material for an existing project where you have to match equipment types. If you do not work for a company that exclusively uses one material type from a  single manufacturer IE  Harsco or Safway. You need to know what you have and where to get more of it. You especially need to know if you are using Imperial material, IE. SAE sizes, 2' 3' 4' etc. or…

Common Sense Economics - Part 3 - Elephants and Sling Shots

Greeting Scaffs from around the globe. Today's rant , as promised, is on Elephant hunting and sling shots. Which will be translated in a few moments. Lets get the quote of the day out of the way. "I have supplied the best men with the best equipment we have and given them what seems to be the wisest mission. That is all I can do" Admiral Earnest J. King prior to the D-day invasion. The reason I have selected this quotation is simple. I think this should be a…

Common Sense Economics - Part 2 - Anal Glaucoma and Spray Paint

Greetings brethren, Today's lesson is on anal glaucoma and spray paint. Yes the two are related in this lesson on economics in our industry. (If you don't know what anal glaucoma is ask someone on your site, they will help you out. )So now that I have your attention, I can explain my theory on how the two are related and could be costing all of us time, effort and money.  My theory is this, IF every corporation, company, yard, location (or whatever we call ourselves…

PROVE IT! - A lesson in documentation.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

In an age where information is so readily available I am shocked, and even sometimes appalled, at how many of us don't actually know what the pieces we are working with are rated for by the manufacturers  I believe I have posted another rant about this, but I have come across the problem again and still got the same answer. It's pretty simple. If you are going to tell someone a 5' bar is rated for a 5000#…

Please forgive my silence as I have been out and about on the pretty scaffold circuit (event staging) and have not had enough time to process a proper subject for individuals as classy as yourselves. Since I can't come up with a proper rant this will just have to do. Today's topic is following directions. If you can't follow directions please become an artist or other free thinker that does not have to deal with directions in your day to day life. If you can find work doing that and be…

Scaffold Myth Busters in Forum Section

Greetings ladies and gentlemen. Come one come all to our own little version of "Myth Busters". You ask the questions and I'll see if I can get those highly educated people to answer them. I have approached the fine people at DH Glabe and Associates about putting to rest some of those things we have all been told on the job site by that grumpy individual we have, or maybe still do, call "Boss". We are still working out the detail but if you click over to the forum…

Revenue vs Non-Revenue Generating - A Lesson in Common Sense Economics

Greetings from the sweltering Mid West. During the heat of this obnoxious summer I realize I have promised you a rant on this topic and have not sat down to flesh out the details. 

Revenue Generating: anyone responsible for committing acts of service that bring revenue into the company. Overly simplified it would be the people who actually do the work that out clients…

I see time to time how scaffold builders, and other crafts have no respect for each other... It's very unprofessional, but its happening as we speak. I was one of those people... But changed my ways. It decreases the fighting at work. And makes a better work environment for all of us... Besides its not worth it. We are all there to make that money.... To support our families.

Safety Professional - When did this become a profession?

Greetings Scaffs from around the globe and here at home. This started out to be a rant about how I don't think safety should be it's own profession (and cue the angry e-mails) and I sat back to ponder the roots of the average Safety Professional. In my mental timeline retrace of the possible origins of the Safety Professional I could only come to one logical conclusion about how "Safety and Compliance" could become a stand alone, salaried, I get paid just like everyone else, position. The…
