Training Requirements for 32 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer/Remover
As per 33188.8.131.52 of the New York City Building Code, this course is required for workers who install, adjust, repair, maintain, inspect, or remove a supported scaffold that is 40 feet or more in height, including the person supervising such, shall, at a minimum, have completed a department-approved training program or course that is at least 32 hours long and shall complete a department-approved 8-hour refresher program or course every 4 years thereafter.
Experienced workers who will erect, dismantle modify or repair supported scaffolds over 40 feet, safety managers, construction superintendents and individuals who just want to learn more about supported scaffold safety.
Instructors will demonstrate safe methods of installation, removal and modification of different types of supported scaffolds using OSHA regulations, DOB standards and good work practice as a guide. Some topics covered during the course will include major scaffold components, importance of proper pre-planning, worker training, and how to read scaffold design drawings. Throughout the course, students will also participate in hands on exercises in which they will build and dismantle supported scaffolds, apply various knots on the rope and demonstrate ability to apply basic rigging techniques.
The instructor will assess students to determine if each student is capable of applying rope knots used to rig scaffold equipment, properly install/maintain fall protection systems, safely build supported scaffold systems and walking/working scaffold platforms and immediately prior to the end of the course, students will independently participate in a multiple choice final exam.
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Recognize supported scaffold related terminology and definitions
- Identify causes of scaffolding accidents and prevention methods
- Discuss differences between New York City Building Code and OSHA scaffolding regulations
- Illustrate hazards related to installation/removing and use of supported scaffolds and how to control them
- Develop a basic knowledge of how to safely use supported scaffold equipment in the classroom environment
- Inspect supported scaffold components using methods learned
Students are required to complete 100% of the course and actively participate in all learning activities including hands-on exercises and the final course exam. Students must pass the hands-on and written assessment with a score of 70% or higher to receive a 32 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer/Remover course completion picture ID card. This card is valid for 4 years.
Students who do not pass the written or practical exam will have one opportunity to retake the entire 32-hour course and retake the exam at reduced fee of $200. Students must contact TSCTA to schedule and pay for the retake class within 6 months following the original class date.
