Whenever a worker leaves the ground, the risk of an accident occurring increases dramatically. Scaffolding (supported or suspended) is a temporary structure made of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workmen while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.
Experienced construction workers working on scaffolds can make the job look so easy, particularly from down below where the observer has both feet on the ground, but it really isn't. Workers can be hundreds of meters off the ground, working in windy conditions with only a metal framework between them and the ground. A lot can go wrong while working on scaffolding and therefore scaffolding training makes sense.
This training offers basic knowledge on scaffolding and its usage in a workplace environment which includes topics such as:
This course is designed as an introductory, awareness level course, for any worker who will be working in or around scaffolding. In most cases this will pertain to the construction or maintenance of buildings, but can also include any type of work being done at height, where the worker will need an elevated, flat surface.
This training helps participants understand the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by regular inspection and supervising the correct ways to erect, maintain, use scaffolding equipment.
It was an effective and nice interaction with Mr. Ajay Reddy on Scaffolding training
