Course Description: During this course, students will be discussing changes and updates to OSHA and New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) policies, procedures, and supported scaffold standards. Students will also have a chance to share Jobsite experiences and opinions about new supported scaffold systems and solutions. This knowledge will help workers to properly prepare for and participate in the supported scaffold installation/removal process. 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, safely build supported scaffold systems, and walk/work scaffold platforms.
