    Safe Scaffold Erection and Inspection

    • An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65 percent of the construction industry, work on scaffolds frequently. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents would prevent 4,500 injuries and 50 deaths every year, at savings for American employers of $90 million in workdays not lost.

    • Unsafe scaffolding procedures can cause accidents, serious injuries and even death.
    • Accidents involving scaffolding mainly involve:
    1. Workers falling
    2. Incorrect operating procedures
    3. Environmental conditions
    4. Falling materials
    • This course discusses the general requirements of scaffold safety as well as the components, erection, use and dismantling of supported and suspended scaffolds. It details more specific guidelines for safely erecting, using, and dismantling each type of scaffold. It also describes important guidelines for conducting safety inspections of supported and suspended scaffolds.

    Currently there are no scheduled classes for this course.
