Scaffolding: Scaffolding By Bill Olson Bill Olson's Bio:: Bill Olson's Bio: Hi Bill Olson here, President of Olson Construction. I started this blog in order to help clear up some of the misconceptions about the scaffolding industry. PowerPoint Presentation: There are many elements of scaffolding that need to be understood in order to work and have the least amount of accidents. Scaffolding safety training shows students how to handle equipment properly when working on a scaffold. It also shows them how the structure is built and how to walk safely across the boards. Students learn about the safety standards for scaffolding that are set by the authorities. This training not only makes them eligible for working on scaffolding, but it also helps them to have confidence that they have the support that they need to work safely . Please visit our website, Scaffolding: Please visit our website, Scaffolding Often in the construction industry, scaffolding is required to complete a project. Scaffolding allows workers to complete their assigned tasks at great heights while having sufficient space to keep tools and other materials handy. It gives them the support that they need to maneuver around the structure easily. Yet, there can be hazards when working with and on scaffolding. Therefore it is important to be trained on scaffolding safety.
