Scaffolding - Competent Person Training 1

This competent person scaffold training covers OSHA's five most serious scaffold hazards:

Course Content:
  • Falls
  • Unsafe Acts
  • Falling Objects
  • Electrocutions
  • Scaffold Collapse

Critical to scaffolding safety are the use of competent persons for the design, erection/dismantling, and maintenance of scaffolds, and trained workers for their use. Therefore, assessing personnel abilities should be a part of all phases of the scaffolding inspection.

This course covers the OSHA Scaffold requirements and is designed to enable participants to effectively understand scaffold hazards and how to mitigate them.
