This online Supported Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments course helps facilities comply with OSHA's Recordkeeping regulation (29 CFR Part 1904). 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. The course helps employees understand the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by knowing the correct ways to erect, maintain and use scaffolding equipment. Areas included in the course include responsibilities of a scaffold expert, creating a level and stable foundation, platforms and planking, the danger of power lines, ramps and walkways, platform hazards, personal fall arrest systems, guarding against falling objects, and more.
