Scaffold Awareness and Inspection

All companies using scaffold have a duty to ensure that it is inspected in accordance with statutory requirements and is safe to use at all times.  In order to comply with the Work at Height Regulations 2005, all scaffolds are to be inspected once every seven days and the inspection recorded.

This one day course will give delegates the awareness of legislative requirements, the knowledge of components of a scaffold, the purpose they service in ensuring its stability and the requirements of a scaffold inspection.  Ultimately it is the employer's responsibility to determine the competency of an individual to carry out a scaffold inspection dependant on their training and experience in relation to the type and complexity of the scaffold.
