A scaffold is a temporary structure that allows workers to perform work at heights. Scaffolds are mainly required during construction activities, operation, maintenance, planned shutdown activities and on many other works at height activities.

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), scaffold-related accidents result in roughly 60 deaths and 4,500 injuries every year. Falls from scaffolds account for roughly 25% of fatal falls from all working surfaces. Approximately 60 people die every year as a result of scaffold-related accidents.

What You'll Learn

The primary goal of this course is to teach workers safe work procedures to follow when working on or around scaffolding. Users will learn:

  • How to identify common scaffolding hazards
  • Preventing accidents on the job site
  • The role of the scaffolding competent person
  • How to avoid common injuries’ associated with scaffolding
  • Protocol for working around scaffolding

The scaffolding awareness simulation is ideal for employees or supervisors who work in or around scaffolding on a construction site.
