The Highs & Lows of the Scaffolding Safety Regulations
OSHA’s scaffold safety standard requires employees who perform work while on a scaffold be trained to recognize hazards associated with the type of scaffolding used and to understand procedures to control or minimize hazards. This course is designed as a model training program to satisfy the standard’s training requirements.
Topics include hazards from falls, being struck by falling objects, electrical hazards, access, proper use of scaffolds, proper handling of materials on scaffolds, and maximum intended loads of scaffolds. This class will focus on the basic safety requirements of scaffold usage and supported scaffold requirements and the unique requirements of hung scaffolding and other specialty scaffolding.
