Scaffolding is an elevated working platform with a supporting structure. According
to OSHA regulation a competent person is required to; direct employees who erect or
dismantle scaffolding, inspect area for set up, ensure weather conditions are favorable
for working, and to inspect the integrity of the structure for working on. A competent
person must be able to identify and predict hazards and be able to take prompt corrective
measures to eliminate them. Employees must be trained in safe work procedures, risks
associated with scaffolding and know hazards and how to prevent these hazards. Fall
hazards, electrical hazards, proper use of the scaffold, and handling of materials
must be included in the training.
