Whenever someone leaves the ground, the risk of an accident increases dramatically. With more than 10,000 scaffold-related injuries reported each year, OSHA has mandated that construction workers be trained on how to safely erect and use these valuable work platforms.
MARCOM's refresher training products on "Suspended Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments" 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:
Definitions of suspended scaffolds.
Responsibilities of a "scaffold expert".
Hazards of working with suspended scaffolds.
Maximum intended load."
Tie-backs and counterweights.
