This course covers the skills and knowledge required to undertake basic scaffolding – including planning work, selecting/inspecting equipment, setting up tasks, and erecting/dismantling scaffold and scaffold equipment (e.g. modular or pre-fabricated scaffolds, cantilevered materials hoists with a maximum working load of 500kg, ropes and gin wheels, safety nets and static lines, and bracket scaffolds).
A person undertaking basic scaffolding is required to hold a high risk work licence. This course meets the formal training requirements required for a licence, as outlined by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.
There are no entry requirements for this course. It is recommended that participants:
- Be at least 18 years of age;
- Have at least a year 8 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills;
- Have access to a suitable workplace to complete the on-the-job training component;
- Mandatory PPE – Steel capped safety boots, Hi Vis work clothing, hard hat and safety glasses;
- Have access to a suitable range of tools – including tool belt, 8m measure tape and holder, ratchet and holder (19mm and 24mm), shifter and holder (300mm), scaffold hammer and holder, 230mm long level and holder.
This course is delivered over five (5) days for the formal training and assessment. The participant is to undertake workplace training with a supervisor who holds the relevant high risk work licence. Evidence of this informal learning must be produced to the assessor prior to undertaking the mandated assessment (e.g. completed logbook or other job training records).
