IMPORTANCE OF SCAFFOLDING TRAINING IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

Scaffolding Training Dubai

A scaffold is a temporary structure that enables workers to work at height and provide safety. Scaffolds are needed during construction, maintenance, shutdown activities.A solid and rigid structural support in the form of a stable scaffold is necessary to safeguard required safety.

Why is safety on scaffolds important?

Every year, about 75 people die, and 4,850 people are injured in car accidents. Scaffold falls account for about a quarter of all fatal falls from all working surfaces. Scaffolding training UAE can help reduce these accidents; hence businesses and industries spend a substantial amount on scaffolding and employee Safety Trainings Dubai.

Why is Scaffolding Training necessary?

Basic knowledge of scaffold materials is essential for identifying and selecting required scaffold components for a specific scaffold. Because Scaffolding is a temporary structure, and scaffold construction is a complicated job, it necessitates the use of qualified, experienced, and competent staff to avoid mishaps. The only way to ensure that the scaffolding management system meets all safety criteria is to provide scaffolding training UAEby a qualified, certified, professional, and experienced trainer.

Live practical demonstrations on the field are a key part of Scaffolding Training.

Who is allowed to design a scaffold?

Only a qualified person is legally allowed to design a scaffold.

What is a qualified person?

A competent individual, according to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United Kingdom), is someone who:

Has a degree, certificate, or professional standing that is recognized.

Hasextensive experience, Training, and knowledge.

Can solve or resolve work-related or project-related issues.

Scaffolding training is divided into three categories.

Classroom Training: The scaffold management system’s fundamental understanding is provided through classroom lectures and discussions between the trainer and participants.

Online Training: Participants receive a fundamental understanding of the scaffold management system remotely through online Training.

Practical Training: On-the-field or in the classroom Participants receive Training to gain hands-on experience and develop teamwork skills to improve their valuable knowledge. Participants in practical field training do installation and deconstruction activities independently, gaining practical learning based on theoretical knowledge and understanding the critical process of step-by-step scaffolding job execution.

Participants can choose between Classroom Training and Online Training and then continue their education with Practical Training.

During the field training, participants learn about the installation and disassembly techniques and their methodology. This helps them comprehend essential topics such as how the scaffold achieves stability, rigidity, and strength. Participants will learn how to install or disassemble scaffolding in a step-by-step process that includes safety components of the Scaffolding Management System, which is an essential and significant part of the entire process, from planning to design and erection to disassembly.

The following are the most important considerations to make during scaffold field training.

Purpose of Scaffolding Training

Scaffolding training is designed to improve the safety of scaffolds and the people who work on them. Field training provides more practical instruction to guarantee that scaffold Team members are skilled, certified, and knowledgeable to ensure the safe execution of scaffolding operations.

Gulf Test Safety Consultancies specialize in Scaffolding management contractors/consultants and offer practical scaffolding training, consisting of In-house and On-field training accompanied by pre-assessment and post-assessment of attendees.

Main Requirements of the Client

The main goal of the Training, according to the client, was to improve supervisors’ and engineers’ existing knowledge of various aspects of scaffolding, from components to load calculation and inspection, so that they could ensure safe and stable scaffolding’s for working at the height of not more than 10 meters are erected. The safety training UAE begins with a pre-assessment, in which participants are assessed for their past knowledge and the gaps that need to be filled over the three days.
