Training Requirements for 8 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer/Remover Refresher
As per 33184.108.40.206 of the New York City Building Code, 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.
In accordance to 33220.127.116.11 (Grace Period), individuals who fail to complete the required refresher program or course within any 4 year period, a refresher program or course shall be considered timely if completed within 1 year after the expiration of the last previously completed inital or refresher course. Where more than 1 year has lapsed, such individual shall be required to successfully recomplete the initial training course.
This course is intended for workers who are renewing an expired or soon to be expired 32 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer/Remover Refresher ID card to continue to supervise and use supported scaffolds in NYC.
During this course students will be discussing changes and updates to OSHA and New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) policies, procedures and supported scaffold standards. Students will also have a chance to share jobsite experiences and opinions about new supported scaffold systems and solutions. This knowledge will help workers to properly prepare for and participate in supported scaffold installation/removal process.
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 install and remove supported scaffold equipment
- 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 demonstrations and the final course exam. Students must earn a score of 70% or higher to receive a 8 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer/Remover Refresher course completion picture ID card.
Students who do not pass the written or practical exam will have one opportunity to retake the entire 8-hour course and retake the exam at reduced fee of $100. Students must contact TSCTA to schedule and pay for the retake class within 6 months following the original class date.
Make-up time is not permitted for this training course. Should students miss any portion of the training, it is the student’s responsibility to contact TSCTA to arrange to attend another scheduled event.
