Working at heights is a high-risk activity and a leading cause of death and serious injury in the workplace. The most effective way to protect workers from the risk of falling is to eliminate the need to work at height. However, when having to work at height, one method that can be used to prevent the risk of a fall is through using scaffolds.
This training teaches about safe erection and use of scaffolds, edge protection, positioning of ladders, keeping walkways and stairwells clear, scaffold maintenance and signage.
The course covers information on the importance of assessing ground conditions when erecting scaffolding and adhering to load restrictions.
