Scaffold Safety
Scaffolding training has a variety of requirements based on the type of scaffold being utilized. It is used in new construction, alteration, routine maintenance, renovation, painting, repairing, and removal activities. Our training program ensures that employees and employers provide a safer and more comfortable work arrangement compared to leaning over edges, stretching overhead, and working from ladders. Additionally, scaffolding overloading is a frequent single cause of major scaffold failure. It includes training provisions and guidelines for scaffold erection and use.
All employees who perform work on a scaffold need to be trained by a person qualified to recognize the hazards associated with the type of scaffold being used and the procedures to control or minimize those hazards. Our training will include the following areas, as applicable:
• The nature of electrical hazards, fall hazards, and falling object hazards in the work area;
• The correct procedures for dealing with electrical hazards and for erecting, maintaining, and disassembling the fall protection system and falling object protection system being used;
• The proper use of the scaffold;
• The proper handling of materials on the scaffold; and
• The maximum intended load and the load-carrying capacities of the scaffolds used.
Employees who are involved in erecting, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, maintaining, or inspecting a scaffold shall be trained by a competent person to recognize any hazards associated with the work in question. The training will include the following topics, as applicable;
• The nature of scaffold hazards;
• The correct procedures for erecting, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, inspecting, and maintaining the type of scaffold in question; and
• The design criteria, maximum intended load-carrying capacity and intended use of the scaffold.
