10,000 scaffold related injuries reported each year Supported Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments helps facilities comply with OSHA’s Recordkeeping regulation (29 CFR Part 1904). Whenever a worker leaves the ground, the risk of an accident occurring increases dramatically. OSHA has mandated that workers be trained on how to safely erect and use these work platforms. The course helps employees understand the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by knowing the correct ways to erect, maintain and use scaffolding equipment.
Topics covered in this program: Include responsibilities of a scaffold expert, creating a level and stable foundation, platforms and planking, the danger of power lines, ramps and walkways, platform hazards, personal fall arrest systems, guarding against falling objects, and more.
