If you do actually use the ladders and plank use the proper brackets and use a REAL SCAFFOLD PLANK!

The best ones are laminated and are marked OSHA SCAFFOLD PLANK. A 2x8 from the local lumberyard is not a substitute.

Be safe,

I don't think a scaffold plank will work on ladder jacks. I use an OSHA approved aluminum plank where possible. I do use a 10 foot 2x10 for short runs and that does not sag much when I am on it. I don't want to take a tumble. I knew an 18 year old that fell 8 feet out of a loader bucket and was killed.

Aluminum planks are great for safety and convenience. Unfortunately for me the work I was doing required standing for a fairly long clip and for whatever reason they made my feet and knees hurt.

As for wooden planks I really don't think that the laminated planks are that much stronger but they will 'talk to you' if overstressed and not fail with one resounding crack!
