Scaffolding Safety

Scaffolds are temporary structures providing means of access and safe working
platforms to facilitate working at height, and also to keep materials and tools in
limited quantity. Scaffolding has a variety of applications. It is used in
construction, alteration, routine maintenance and renovation activities. Use of
scaffold provides safe and more convenient working conditions as compared to
conventional working arrangements such as use of ladders, overhead stretching
working, etc. Properly erected and maintained, scaffolding provides workers safe
access to work locations, level and stable working platforms, and temporary
storage for tools and materials for performing immediate tasks.
The course will provide knowledge of legal obligations contained within National
& International standards for provision and use of scaffolding, the correct
terminology and components, and the construction standards required to
ensure safe places of work. The course will also provide inspection techniques
and the recording procedures necessary to comply with the statutory provisions.
The aim of this scaffolding training is to provide the participants both theoretical
and practical knowledge to enable them to erect, inspect, use and dismantle
scaffolds, using standard scaffolding guidelines.
