The rolling scaffolds are an important piece of equipment needed for interior work in almost every phase of commercial construction. They are primarily used inside large, enclosed buildings with finished concrete floors that require access to high work. Sometimes they are needed on custom residential sites where the structures have high, vaulted ceilings. All scaffold regulations also apply to rolling scaffolds. The hazards associated with scaffolding rank very high on the list of most frequently cited violations in construction. Scaffold accidents amount to about 10% (more than 1,100) of all fatalities annually on construction worksites. Out of the top 10 OSHA violations cited, four are scaffold-related issues.

OSHA 30-Hour Construction safety course is intended for supervisors or for workers with some safety responsibility. It provides a greater depth and variety of training on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards than the TEXO Safety First class.

This course covers the requirements for construction and the safe construction and use of scaffolding using the OSHA construction scaffold standard 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.
Companies of all sizes struggle to recruit talented millennials to their teams. Yet, those that succeed are faced with a more daunting challenge — how do you consistently engage, motivate and coach this new generation? In partnership with Purdue University and the University of Denver, Bradley Hartmann led an intergenerational, industry-specific study to evaluate how each generation views themselves and views the other generations. The results and recommendations will entertain and enlighten, enabling your multigenerational team to collaborate more effectively.
