Valley Scaffolding

Valley Scaffolding Srvices is arguably one of the most
experienced suppliers of scaffolding in the Hunter Valley region.

Valley Scaffolding Services is a provider of industrial scaffolding, catering for construction, maintenance and shutdown operations. From our Mount Thorley branch we service a wide cross section of customers including mining companies (open-cut & underground), marine & port operators, mineral processing, prime contractors, and OEMs.

In May /June 2012, Valley Scaffolding Services successfully completed a large and difficult scaffolding operation at Port Waratah Coal Services, using the new and innovative “LAYER SCAFFOLDING” system to enable access for the removal and re-installation of a new coal loading spreader chute. The new LAYER system enabled the scaffold to be installed without the need to build from the bottom up, which was hugely successful considering it was an over water operation.

Our company provides scaffolding and access for maintenance, new machine builds, construction sites, and general support to the mining, construction and resources industry. Excellent safety record, culture and proven safety management performance. Strategic footprint established in the Hunter Valley – one of Australia’s premier coal basins. Valley Scaffolding Services are one of a select few scaffolding companies offering specialized scaffolding solutions to the mining, construction and resources industries throughout Australia.

This is the beauty of such a scaffold system.

Valley Scaffolding Services HSE current state

Valley Scaffolding Services currently has historically had a number of localised and site specific Safety Management Plans (SMP) and Environmental Management Plans (EMP) across the business unit. Our business unit typically had its own safety tool kit - E.g. SLAMS, JSA’s, SWP’s etc. Risk management processes existed at a local level with opportunity for the implementation of a Valley Scaffolding Services wide strategy which is now fully underway. Our company has excellent technical competence with opportunities for safety leadership development (line management ownership). Employee engagement programs are localised with scope for improvement
