Scaffold Safety Training Program


Welcome to Scaffold Safety Training Program

Do you remember building giant structures with Erector Sets, putting together tiny pieces of metal and then piling all your other toys on them to see how much they could hold? With our Scaffold Safety training program, you won't wonder about your portable scaffolding capacity. Learn ways to construct safe platforms, safely access scaffolding, and provide fall protection. Safely put together a truly giant structure from sound footings, to tie-offs, to scaffold platforms.

You'll learn how to protect workers below from falling objects and even how to safely use rolling scaffolding. Be prepared to erect scaffolding, safely work on or around scaffolding, or supervise its use. You might not be able to build a massive helio-train-o-tractor-o-copter with construction scaffolding, but you can build and work safely with scaffolding education from our Scaffold Safety program.

This course can be taken in a self-directed pace. You can achieve a completed program of study in as little time as 30 minutes. You will have 1 year access to this course.
