Aug. 8: Demonstration of Safe Scaffolding Installation Held
A demonstration of how to safely install scaffolding systems was held at Carpenters Millwright College. Since Jan. 1, the OHS Division has issued over 146 orders to employers and workers for non-compliance with scaffolding requirements. The OHS Regulations require an employer to provide a safe working platform, as well as a safe and convenient means of access when working at heights. Scaffolding should be installed by experienced scaffolders to ensure that it’s erected, altered or dismantled properly.
