This month the C.T. Brayton & Sons team reviewed the principles of safe scaffolding practices. Training included a comprehensive view of scaffold use in the construction industry. Designated Competent Persons, such as Superintendents and Project Managers, discussed how to inspect and recognize potential hazards of scaffolding as well as fall protection measures, access requirements, load capacity, and falling object protection to help ensure a safe worksite. The team also participated in the erection and dismantling of scaffolding in order to fully understand the process, procedures, and to ensure both Cal-OSHA and the manufacturers recommendations are met.
