Course Summary:
To comply with the Workplace Health and Safety Regulations, a person must complete hands-on scaffolding practical training as per CSA standard Z797. The proper erection and use of scaffolding is a primary safety concern for construction and industrial trades, and a standard topic for ongoing upgrade training in those occupations. Scaffolding Awareness introduces students to basic principles, guidelines for use, and common components and terminology.

The module reviews the procedures for assembling frame scaffolding and provides detailed step by step instruction and hands-on exercises in the correct procedures for assembling modular system and tube and clamp scaffolding systems. Interactive 3D models of components and tools provide students with a clear understanding of each step and how it must be performed. By practicing assembly procedures using the scaffolding module, students can be better prepared and more confident when they move to the shop for their practical training.

This course is for awareness only. A classroom course with practical hands-on components is required for jobsite certification and compliance.
