Scaffold Competent Person Training

Nearly a third of all construction fatalities are falls from heights, making scaffolds one of the most dangerous areas on a job site. Therefore, OSHA requires a specially trained individual called a “competent person” to be present whenever scaffolding is set up, used, and taken down.

Circle Safety & Health offers a comprehensive Scaffolding Competent Person Training course that will train an individual to become a competent person and meet OSHA requirements. This five-hour class is ideal for a wide range of employees, including:

  • People in charge of erection operations
  • Those in charge of people working on scaffolds
  • Supervisors
  • Site Superintendents
  • Project Managers
  • Site Safety Officers

Our highly knowledgeable safety instructors will provide your team members with the information they need to help ensure the safety of all scaffolding workers. We can conduct training at your location or at our training room in Richmond, VA.
