Impact Safety Inc. offers Scaffold Competent Person Training Courses at Reasonable Prices

AUGUSTA, Ga.Aug. 11, 2021PRLog — Impact Safety’s Scaffold Competent Person Training Courses cover all the vital training that a competent person in a potentially dangerous area of work needs to have.

In the last year alone, OSHA reported more than 1000 scaffolding violations on job sites across America, with more than ten workers dying in scaffold-related incidents. This makes Scaffolding the second-most cited violation behind Fall Protection and shows the need for proper safety training in this area of work.

OSHA’s scaffolding standard includes training requirements that reduce fatalities and protect workers from the dangers of high-elevation worksite structures. These provisions include:

  • Fall arrest systems
  • Standard guardrail heights
  • Cross bracing requirements
  • Mid-rail standards
  • The use of footings, platforms, and other support systems like guying ties and braces.

Impact Safety scaffold training includes a full-day OSHA safety training course designed for workers responsible for supervising the erection and dismantling of scaffolds. The student will be able to perform required pre-shift inspections of the scaffold equipment used during the shift. For this course, it is mandatory that at least one scaffold competent person be on-site while working with scaffolding equipment. All students will be given certification upon successful completion of the course.

Speaking about their OSHA training classes, the spokesperson said, “The need for OSHA scaffold training is critical to the safety of your workers. Our company’s professionals stay up-to-date with OSHA safety training requirements and provide safety consulting to assist you in protecting your employees.”
