Scaffolding can give people an efficient and safe means to perform work. When properly erected and maintained, scaffolding provides workers a safe access to work areas, level and stable working platforms, and temporary storage for tools and materials.

This course will discuss the general requirements of scaffolding, the basic parts of a scaffold as well as the different types of scaffolding.
