Scaffolding Safety Training

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Manage risks while building and dismantling scaffolds
  • Inspect equipment and scaffolds.
  • Construct and dismantle scaffolds.
  • Correctly construct and verify access to work platforms on scaffolds
  • Correctly construct and verify work platforms on scaffolds.
  • Understand the use and importance of guardrails, toe boards and other collective protective equipment
  • Correctly erect and dismantle scaffolds
  • Assess the rigidity and stability of scaffolds
  • Carry out inspections on scaffolds

Training Duration:

This Sacffolding Safety Training has a duration of 3 days with a ratio of 50% theory to 50% Practicals. This includes classroom presentations, discussion, exercises and practical sessions. Participants will Build, inspect, perform work on scaffold and dismatle it. We can organise the training onsite in Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Central African Republic, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea

Training Prerequisite:

Participants for this Sacffolding Safety Training must be 18 years of age and be physically capable of performing scaffolding activities. They should be able to understand either basic English or basic French.
