Even though ladders can be used to reach work that is high off the ground, only scaffolds offer large enough work areas to hold workers, supplies and equipment. While scaffolds make our jobs easier, we must know how to use them correctly to prevent serious accidents. In fact, an estimated 10,000 scaffold-related accidents occur each year. Employees who use scaffolding can prevent these accidents by using their required training and following safe work practices. This video focuses on supported scaffolds and the safety and training regulations developed by OSHA for working with them. Topics include designated access areas, protection against falling objects, use of fall protection, scaffold construction procedures, installing scaffold platforms and overhead scaffold hazards.
