Scaffold Safety Awareness

This 8-hour virtual instructor-led training course provides the necessary safety information to remind workers the importance of working safely in and around scaffolding. We will cover the regulatory overview and hazards surrounding the erection, operations, and dismantling of scaffolding.

7:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Virtual Training

An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65 percent of the construction industry, work on scaffolds. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents may prevent some of the 4,500 injuries and over 60 deaths every year. All of these accidents can be controlled by compliance with OSHA standards and frequent safety training.

This course is a great supplement for 1-day competent person level certification training. The practical training and supervision should be performed at the jobsite. We can come out and conduct the necessary hands-on training to fulfill the competent person certification training at an additional cost.

Course Agenda:

  • Regulatory Overview
  • Definitions
  • Types of Scaffolding
  • Scaffolding Requirements
  • Hazard Recognition and Prevention
  • Erecting Scaffolds
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Inspecting Scaffolds
  • Group Discussion
  • Final Exam

Registration is open through September 9th. Contact training@agc-ca.org if you would like to register after that date.
