Program Description

This is an IHSA awareness course

The half-day Scaffold Users’ Hazard Awareness program is designed to assist those who work on or near scaffolds to understand the relevant legislation, learn the risks associated with their work, and find out how to manage those risks.

This program enhances the content through discussions and worksheets as well as an actual incident report, a mock inspection, and an evaluation plan. Participants develop a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities as scaffold users and learn a variety of ways to recognize and control hazards in their work.


Program Content

  • Clarification on roles and responsibilities
  • Types of scaffolds and their main components
  • Three-to-one calculations for tie-ins and outriggers
