Webinar: Responding to OSHA’s Emphasis on Scaffolding
When: May 14, 2020 1:00 EST
Each year numerous fatalities and needless injuries occur as a result of improper scaffold erection and use. Scaffolding safety is not unique to the construction industry. Maintenance and facility engineering staff in industrial operations routinely erect scaffolding for a wide range of plant operations and maintenance related activities. This webinar will focus on the most common safety violations associated with scaffold erection, use and dismantling. We will also address proactive measures to avoid these common pitfalls. OSHA has initiated a Special Emphasis Program aimed directly at employers who routinely utilize scaffolding to insure their employees are properly trained in the safe use of scaffolding and the enforcement of the OSHA Scaffolding Standard.
