Overview & Objectives

The construction industry is full of nuances that require employees and employers alike to have specific job site safety knowledge and skills. This is especially true when it comes to projects that involve erecting scaffolds, as the machinery and circumstances involved present a unique set of challenges and risks. In our online Scaffold Erection Guidelines for Construction course, you’ll receive industry-leading scaffold erection training designed to promote job site safety when working with or around scaffolds.
