Properly constructed and maintained scaffolds are a valuable tool. They allow workers to perform tasks at elevated heights with room to move about and a place for supplies. However, if not used properly accidents and even death may occur. The Occupation Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 72% of scaffolding accidents and fatalities in recent years are due to circumstances that could have been controlled by simply complying with OSHA scaffolding standards.
The Video On Demand courses: Inspection Basics for Supported Scaffolds, Supported Scaffolding Safety and Suspended Scaffolding Safety explain how to comply with OSHA training requirements, how to build and maintain scaffolding according to OSHA standards, as well specific content on supported and suspended scaffolding while focusing on safety.
