Scaffold Inspection

Course Aim:

  • Identify the major items to consider when performing scaffold inspection
  • Specify the major elements OSHA’S Regulation 29 CFR 1926 Sub part 1 Scaffolding

Introduction: Ensuring the work place is a safe environment and as free from hazards as possible is everyone’s responsibility. When scaffolding is used on the job site, it must be thoroughly inspected before each use, regardless of how thoroughly it was inspected during the erection and immediately after erection. An information sheet provides a checklist to follow when performing scaffold inspections. It is based on the OSHA regulations 1926, 451, 452 and the Non-Mandatory Appendices. The format used is that the OSHA regulation statements have been turned into a question.
