Scaffolding – Safety Training

Scaffolds are widely used in the construction and maintenance industry to give employees access to heights ranging from a few feet to over several hundred feet. But as the height increases, so do the risks. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports that scaffolding accidents attribute to an estimated 9,000 injuries and 79 fatalities annually.
