Description

The Principles of Scaffolding (OSHA #3085) course covers the requirements for safe construction and use of scaffolding using OSHA's construction scaffold standards as a guide.  Course topics include hazards associated with scaffold design, assembly, disassembly and use, types of scaffolds, determining scaffold capacity, employee qualifications and training and maintenance, repair and inspection requirements.  Students will participate in workshops to reinforce concepts of safe scaffolding.  Upon course completion, students will have the ability to identify the types of scaffolds and their components, determine safe assembly, use and disassembly and recognize common violations of OSHA standards.

NOTE:  Principles of Scaffolding (OSH #3085) is replacing the previously delivered TEEX course known as Scaffold Safety (PRT123).

    Policies

    Attendance Policy

    TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires all students to fully attend enrolled classes. In order for the student to receive a certificate of completion, they must attend the entire class. We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a student out of class and have implemented the following policy to handle those situations. Below are the responsibilities and expectations of students in this TEEX course.

    • Students are expected to attend 100% of the course in which they are enrolled before a certificate of completion can be issued. 
    • If an extenuating circumstance arises in which a student is unable to attend 100% of class, the student must complete the Student Absentee Request form prior to leaving the classroom and submit it to the instructor for approval. If the extenuating circumstance arises during non-class hours, the student must complete the Student Absentee Request form immediately upon return to the classroom and submit it to the instructor for approval.
    • With an approved absence for extenuating circumstances, if the absence is short enough, the instructor has discretion to provide options for make-up work if the classroom hours are equivalent.
    • For all other absences, students must re-enroll through TEEX Registration to retake the course within six months.
