Yet another scaffolding question

Do scaffolders ever check to make sure they’re working on firm foundations?  This upright pole on the London Road frontage seems to be placed rather close to underground water meters/water isolating valves.  Who’s to say that the inevitable voids around them won’t collapse under the weight of the scaffolding?  But you can see this sort of thing quite often, so presumably it’s ok???  (Just don’t stand underneath the scaffolding for too long!)
