HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?

Damage scaffolding starts with abuse. Abuse equals misuse.

If a person does not know how to use something like upright aluminum scaffolding they will wind up misusing it and in turn damaging the scaffolding. The pictures below reflects this abuse. The damage to these parts were the result of someone not knowing how to use the scaffolding properly.
