This course covers the requirements for safe construction and use of scaffolding using OSHA’s construction scaffold standards as a guide. OSHA standards require employers to train each employee who performs work while on a scaffold trained to recognize the hazards associated with the type of scaffold being used and to understand the procedures to control or minimize those hazards. Course topics include hazards associated with scaffold design, assembly, disassembly and use, types of scaffolds, determining scaffold capacity, employee qualifications and training and maintenance, repair and inspection requirements.
Knowledge Check: A written multiple-choice learning exercise and Operator Performance Evaluation is administered at the conclusion of the course.
Course Completion Documentation: Upon successful course completion, each participant will receive a Builders’ Association Photo ID Data Card.
