scaffolding - ON-SITE TRAINING

BRING IISC'S TRAINING TO YOU!

 The Iowa-Illinois Safety Council's trainers can customize the training to your company and your specific needs.  On-site training is great for when you need to train several employees with little disruption to their normal schedule.


An estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65 percent of the construction industry, work on scaffolds. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents may prevent some of the 4,500 injuries and over 60 deaths every year, at a savings for American employers of $90 million in workdays not lost. In a recent BLS study, 72 percent of workers injured in scaffold accidents attributed the accident either to the planking or support giving way, or to the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object. All of these accidents can be controlled by compliance with OSHA standards.
