Whenever a worker leaves the ground, the risk of an accident occurring increases dramatically. With more than 10,000 scaffold related injuries reported each year, OSHA has mandated that workers be trained on how to safely erect and use these work platforms. These products will help employers meet the training requirements of OSHA’s Scaffolding regulation.
MARCOM’s training products on “Suspended Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments” help employees understand the dangers of working with scaffolds, and how these risks can be minimized by knowing the correct ways to erect, maintain and use scaffolding equipment.
All of the products… the new “Micro-Learning” and full-length online courses as well as the DVDs and interactive CD courses… discuss topics that are integral to employees’ understanding of these issues.
Topics covered in these products include:
- Responsibilities of a “scaffold expert”.
- Platforms and planking.
- The danger of power lines.
- Platform hazards.
- Personal fall arrest systems.
- Guarding against falling objects.
- and more.
All “Suspended Scaffolding Safety” products are available in English and Spanish.
The “Suspended Scaffolding Safety in Construction Environments” MicroLearning curriculum includes the following 3 – 5 minute courses:
- “About Suspended Scaffolds”
- “Suspension Devices”
- “Safe Work Practices”
- “Fall Protection”
