For those working in construction environments, it is not new news that scaffolds enable work to be performed in high places better than ladders. Scaffolds provide a work area where workers can move around and keep equipment near, a feature not found when using ladders.
Scaffolding safety is important when working with scaffolds, as improper use can result in a fall, causing serious bodily harm. OSHA has regulations for training and safety when working with scaffolds to make certain workers stay safe. It is up to both the employer to provide the right safety training and the employee to complete the training.
Workers must know how to properly build, maintain, and work on scaffolds. Performing any of these tasks improperly can lead to serious injury. Unfortunately, thousands scaffolding accidents occur yearly. Proper training and adherence to safety standards can reduce this number.
Our training includes videos that teach viewers about all of the important regulations and procedures needed to maintain a safe work environment. They will learn about other hazards associated with scaffolding use and other safety equipment needed to grant protection in the event of a fall as well.
Use these lessons to train construction workers to properly use scaffolding. Working on an elevated platform does not have to be dangerous. With this training program workers are enabled to work with scaffolding safely and effectively.
