Advanced Scaffold Inspection Safety Training

There is a growing emphasis for health and safety training in the construction industry as well as the mobile access tower industry. There is a growing recognition on the potential risks and dangers involved in these industries which many of the workers including managers and supervisors are not aware of or take enough proactive responses to counter their occurrence or effects.

Hence, the necessary health and safety training legislature comes up with the required safety training courses based on a particular standard such as the CISR scaffolding standard. CISR is the abbreviation for Construction Industry Scaffolder Records which is a specialized body that sets the high standards on health and safety procedures at the work place especially where heights are involved in the work.

Course Description

The popular CISR Advanced Scaffold Inspection course may only be two days long but it takes in only twelve candidates at any one session. Qualified CISR Scaffolding inspectors would facilitate the course to equip the course learners with the necessary knowledge and skills in scaffolding works and safety measures.

Hence, the course emphasizes on safety and health issues with relation to height at the workplace. This type of safety training is meant to create an acute awareness of the dangers and perils of heights at work.

This safety training course is strongly recommended for those who are actively involved or responsible in construction, tower erection and dismantling, inspection and management of high rise properties.

This is an advanced course where the qualified candidates are to inspect the site scaffolds to confirm their stability and safe functionality. The course aims to equip the candidates with the right scaffolding information and procedures that should be practiced while inspecting any advanced scaffolding structure.

Course objectives

The graduating course candidates should be able to understand the importance of safety training and application at the workplace. They would have a good understanding and application of existing statutory regulations. These course graduates would be able to identify the different scaffold equipment, components and structures.

Graduating candidates would be well equipped with a sound knowledge of scaffolding methods in construction with a keen eye and alert mind in identifying potential hazards in existing scaffolds. They would be able to handle the proper loading and tying requirements on scaffolds they need to inspect and approve.

Course content

A lot of important content is attached to this safety training course; health issues; safety legislation; advantages and limitations of advanced scaffolds; uses and methods; practical scaffolding inspection exercise.

There would be a clear identification of the various types of industry preferred scaffolds such as tubular hanging scaffolds, flying shore scaffolds, raking shore scaffolds, temporary roof scaffolds and slung scaffolds.
