The Basics of Scaffolding

Seably 45 minutes

The purpose of this coures is to increase the knowledge of those who work with scaffoldings and to ensure a safe work environment. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries are not unusual around scaffoldings, and fall accidents are the most common cause of death in the construction industry.

The need for proper training is therefore evident, and the Swedish Work Environment Authority (Arbetsmiljöverket) has imposed sanctions on all companies violating the requirement for training. While this course is based on shore-side activities, it is very much applicable to vessels.

You are given a theoretical understanding of how to erect, modify, work on, and dismantle scaffoldings with a working height of two to nine meters. Risk assessment, ergonomics, and the provisions for working on scaffoldings are covered in this training.
