Course Objectives

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 requires the inspection of certain construction work equipment and places of work at height (r12 and 13 and Schedule 7). It also demands that every employer ensures that no person engages in any activity, including organisation, planning and supervision, in relation to working at height, or work equipment for use in such work unless they are competent to do so, or, if being trained, is supervised by a competent person.

This two day Scaffold Safety Inspection course will give delegates such knowledge so as to enable them to understand how to inspect scaffolding structures in accordance with statutory regulations. This course is aimed at Managers, Supervisors and Operatives who are responsible for inspecting scaffolds and completing reports in accordance with statutory Regulations.
