Many residential and commercial construction projects require the use of some form of scaffolding. Unsafe scaffolding procedures can cause accidents, serious injuries and even death. Accidents involving scaffolding mainly involve workers falling, incorrect operating procedures, environmental conditions, and falling materials. This course will discuss the elements of an effective Scaffold Safety Program (SSP) with emphasis on pre-planning the erection, use and dismantling processes.
