Scaffold Safety Course

Falling from height is the most common reason for accidents and death in the construction industry.  Knowing how to work safely on scaffolds is a big part of protecting yourself from injury or death.  In a Bureau of Labor Statistics study, 72% of workers injured in scaffold accidents attributed the accident either to the planking or support giving way, or to the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object.  All of these can be controlled by compliance with the OSHA standard for scaffolding 29 CFR 1926.451, outlined in this course.  If you work, or are going to be working, in or around scaffolds and at height, then this scaffold course will provide you with a very nice introduction on how you can do this type of work safely.

E-Training’s Scaffold Safety Course will teach you appropriate scaffold construction methods which include: erecting, moving or altering scaffolds properly, and protecting from falling objects or tools.  The course includes information ensuring stable access on scaffolds and the hazards involved with scaffolds.  Inspection and fall protection are also discussed.
