Scaffolding safety program

Scaffolding program

The scaffolding safety program is designed to provide our employees with appropriate protection from injury when working at heights thereby preventing fall related injury.

Fall protection in the form of fixed railings and/or lanyards and harnesses will be provided for affected employees with the expectation that the employee(s) will maintain the equipment in an appropriate manner and report immediately to their supervisor as to any damage or excessive wear.

The type and level of employee protection will be dependent on the specific hazards to be controlled at each job site. The levels and type of protection may vary, but once assigned and unless otherwise specifically instructed otherwise, all affected employees will wear the assigned equipment and or adhere to related safety procedures.
