This Scaffold Inspection Training course is run at the client’s site, with a scaffold in place (we can carry this course out without a scaffold in place however it is more desirable and beneficial for the delegates to actually be able to ‘see’ the scaffold), and is not open to individuals.
We can accommodate groups of sub contractors ‘clubbing together’ but generally this is a company course.
Scaffold Inspection Training Course Overview
To develop an understanding of scaffold components, methods of construction and inspection procedures of basic access scaffolds.
A scaffold used for construction should be inspected before it is used for the first time and then every 7 days, until it is removed.
It should also be inspected each time it is exposed to conditions likely to cause deterioration e.g. following adverse weather conditions or following substantial alteration.

The BEST decision on training you will ever make!
All scaffolding inspection should be carried out by a competent person whose combination of knowledge, scaffold inspection training and experience is appropriate for the type and complexity of the scaffold he is inspecting. A non-scaffolder who has attended a suitable scaffold inspection training course and has the necessary background experience would be considered competent to inspect a basic scaffold (i.e. a site manager).
Who Should Attend
Site Supervisors and Managers who are responsible for inspecting and checking scaffolds
- Regulations and Approved Codes of Practice
- Scaffolding terminology
- Tubes, boards and fittings
- Gin wheels and ropes
- Scaffold Ties
- Construction of basic access scaffolds
- Practical inspection
We used Award for some essential site staff training in Manual Handling and Working at Heights and were extremely pleased with what was delivered. The training was engaging and fun and staff gave it great feedback. The fact the training was in house kept costs and travelling times right down. I will use Award for all the training I possibly can from now on!
The Downs School,
Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.
Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood.
Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!
