The Principles of Scaffolding (OSHA #3085) course covers the requirements for safe construction and use of scaffolding using OSHA's construction scaffold standards as a guide. Course topics include hazards associated with scaffold design, assembly, disassembly and use, types of scaffolds, determining scaffold capacity, employee qualifications and training and maintenance, repair and inspection requirements. Students will participate in workshops to reinforce concepts of safe scaffolding. Upon course completion, students will have the ability to identify the types of scaffolds and their components, determine safe assembly, use and disassembly and recognize common violations of OSHA standards.
NOTE: Principles of Scaffolding (OSH #3085) is replacing the previously delivered TEEX course known as Scaffold Safety (PRT123).
There are no prerequisites for this course.
TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
