Scaffold Erector (Builder) and Inspector Competent Person (10-hrs)

Objective

To prepare individuals who are involved in erecting, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, maintaining, or inspecting a scaffold trained by a competent person to recognize any hazards associated with the work in question and understanding correct procedures.

Target Group

Individuals involved in erecting, disassembling, moving, operating, repairing, maintaining, or inspecting a scaffold.

**This training certificate does not establish the individual a competent person. Requirements for being designated a competent person under Part 1926 Subpart L (Scaffolds) definition provides "one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them." By its terms, the definition of a "competent person" compels the employer to select an employee based upon their capability to identify hazards. No course can provide that authority, since it can only be provided by the employer.

The standard does not specify particular training requirements for competent persons. Instead, it defines a competent person in terms of capability.**
