Lesson Description

The goal of this lesson is to enable learners to recognize basic types of supported and suspended scaffolds and their capacity requirements, their basic design and construction requirements, and the basic hazards posed by scaffold work and their controls.


An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65 percent of the construction industry, work on scaffolds. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents may prevent some of the 4,500 injuries and over 60 deaths every year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data for the private sector. The productivity savings for American employers is estimated at $90 million dollars, in workdays not lost. In a recent BLS study, 72 percent of workers injured in scaffold accidents attributed the accident either to the planking or support giving way, or to the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object. All of these accidents can be controlled by compliance with OSHA standards.
