BENEFITS

Scaffolds are common equipment used in various industries, most notably construction, to give workers safe access to elevated areas. But using scaffolding can expose workers to the risk of falls from heights. So it’s critical that you train workers on how to avoid such falls.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this safety talk handout for the scaffold requirements in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws and your OHS program. Give it to workers who work on scaffolds as part of a safety talk on preventing falls from this equipment.
