Scaffold Use in the Construction Industry
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides OSHA guidance on scaffolds for protecting workers using scaffolding systems on construction sites.


Scaffolding hazards continue to rank high on the list of most frequently cited standards in the construction industry.  Workers involved in working on scaffolding systems are exposed to potential fall hazards. Scaffold-related accidents account for a significant number of fatalities in the construction workplace.


OSHA recognizes that working on scaffolding systems present serious hazards to all workers involved. Therefore, OSHA developed the Scaffold Standard to protect workers using scaffolding systems on construction sites.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to employers/business owners, engineers, managers, construction contractors/workers and any other personnel working on construction projects that require scaffolding.
