“Scaffolding” is an elevated work platform. In plain English, it is a place to work above the ground. They can be small, just a few inches tall. They can be huge, twenty-or-more stories in the air. They can even hang from underneath bridges or buildings.
Scaffolds are also a place where many injuries occur. Construction standards require they be anchored in such a way that they do not sway (or even move) when being used. The planking (called decking) should be smooth and free of holes. Handrails are almost always required.
