SCAFFOLD SAFETY AWARENESS

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

In this presentation we will review the OSHA regulations as they relate to the use, basic safety, and management of various scaffolds used in the workplace. An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65% of the construction industry, work on scaffolds on a regular basis. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents would prevent 4,500 injuries and 60 deaths each year, at a savings for American employers of 90 million dollars in workdays not lost. This course will cover the general types, uses and purpose of scaffolding. A highlight of hazards that may be present during the setup, use or removal of scaffolds will also be discussed.

REGULATORY REFERENCE:

29 CFR 1910 Subpart D Section 28
29 CFR 1926.451

APPROXIMATE DURATION:

20 Minutes
