Created in 2000, the Scaffolding Program follows the federal training requirement found in OSHA 1926 Subpart L, providing pre-job training while authorizing Boilermakers for work. This two-part course ensures Boilermaker safety and productivity, and includes the Scaffold User course and the Scaffold Erector/Dismantler course.
According to OSHA, an estimated 2.3 million U.S. construction workers or 65% of the construction industry work on scaffolds.
The Scaffold User course, a component of the OSHA 30-hour segment, offers Boilermakers the general requirements of the subpart with emphasis on hazard recognition as well as the training requirements. The hands-on Scaffold Erector/Dismantler course provides Boilermakers the skills necessary to erect and dismantle a variety of scaffolds that may include system, tank builder, suspended, tubular welded frames, modular towers, and tube and couple scaffolds.
