    Default staircase

    would anyone be able to tell me,
    if i built a system scaffold staircase inside a building and the staircase was to be used for access to a platform (not scaffold)most probably on a daily basis,
    would it still be required to have a 7 day inspection or "could it be classed as a permanent structure.
    It would be tied in by welding scaffold tubes to a permanent steel structure on a 2mx3m grid and it is going to be up for ever and a day.
    Is there any way round it or is it just FACT it needs inspecting?

    THANKS

    i would say IT WOULD NEED TO BE INSPECTED EVERY SEVEN DAYS AS IT IS STILL ERECTED OUT OF SCAFFOLDING

    I believe a 7 day inspection is required as long as the scaffold is erected

    Your customers would be better off constructing a permanent staircase from steel and grid plates,as it would then come under "building regulations" and not require the weekly inspection

    What life this if full of care,
    we have no time to stand and stare ?
