IES Virtual Classroom - Scaffold Design Basics and Safety 24th Run

22nd - 23rd Jul 2021
9:00AM - 12:45PM -


Although Singapore has improved its safety record considerably in the last decade, many accidents continue to cause injuries and claim lives. One of the common accident sources is scaffolding, the temporary work platform and support needed to erect a permanent structure. Most workplace accidents involve scaffolds in termsof structural collapse or of personnel being injured during the erection, use and dismantling of scaffolds.

This course will cover the common types and systems of scaffolds in Singapore, and discuss the characteristics of scaffolds and other temporary structures as against the permanent structures they help to build, to understand the reasons for special care of scaffolds.

Without going into actual design, the course will present the basics of structural behaviour so that participants can appreciate the vulnerable aspects of scaffolds. It will also identify the various hazards while working with and on scaffolds, and various safeguards against accidents and injuries from scaffold work.

To prepare site personnel to become aware of the importance of details during scaffold erection, use and dismantling, in relation to proper documentation of SWPs, incidents, etc. and direct and continuous monitoring of scaffolds and workers on them.
