Course Description: Instructors will demonstrate safe methods of installation, removal, and modification of different types of supported scaffolds using OSHA regulations, DOB standards, and good work practices as a guide. Some topics covered during the course will include major scaffold components, the importance of proper pre-planning, worker training, and how to read scaffold design drawings. Throughout the course, students will also participate in hands-on exercises to build and dismantle supported scaffolds, apply various rope knots and demonstrate the ability to apply basic rigging techniques. The instructor will assess students to determine if each student can apply rope knots used to rig scaffold equipment, properly install/maintain fall protection systems, and safely build supported scaffold systems and walking/working scaffold platforms.
