According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), scaffold-related accidents result in roughly 60 deaths and 4,500 injuries every year. Falls from scaffolds account for roughly 25% of fatal falls from all working surfaces. Approximately 60 people die every year as a result of scaffold-related accidents.
OSHA scaffolding certification courses are designed for anyone who works on or around scaffolds, including personnel involved in assembling, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, maintaining, and/or inspecting scaffolds. Identification and selection of required scaffold components for a particular scaffold calls for knowledge of scaffold materials. Scaffold being a temporary structure and scaffold building is a complex activity, it requires skilled, experienced and competent workforce to prevent accidents. To maintain all safety standards for scaffolding management system proper training by qualified, certified, skilled and experienced trainer is the only solution. Safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives. Online certification courses meet the requirements set forth by OSHA for construction scaffolding training.
