Whenever a worker leaves the ground, the risk of an accident occurring increases dramatically. With more than 10,000 scaffold related injuries reported each year, OSHA has mandated that workers be trained on how to safely erect and use these work platforms. This program will help employers meet the training requirements of OSHA's Scaffolding regulation.
MARCOM's refresher training products on "Supported Scaffolding Safety" give employees the information they need to refresh their understanding of the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by knowing the ways to correctly erect, maintain and use scaffolding equipment. Topics covered in these products include:
Responsibilities of a "scaffold expert".
Platforms and planking.
The danger of power lines.
Personal fall arrest systems.
Guarding against falling objects.
