Overview & Objectives
In the State of California, construction workers must adhere to specific Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), often called Cal/OSHA, guidelines when erecting, using, and disassembling scaffolding. Additionally, erection and dismantling of scaffolding must be performed under the direction of Qualified Persons to ensure the safety of their users. In California Scaffold Use for Construction, participants will receive intermediate-level CA scaffold training that they can apply in the field within just 30 minutes via an intuitive online format.
NOTE: This course is based on Cal/OSHA regulations for all construction professionals employed in the state. For those working outside California, please consult our courses based on federal OSHA regulations.
