It is commonly used on construction sites to keep workers safe when work cannot be done at ground level. There are many different types of basic scaffolding including mobile scaffolding, modular scaffolding, and prefabricated scaffolding to name a few.

    The primary purpose of a scaffold is to provide a safe work platform for not only scaffolders but also all workers who will use the scaffold once it has been built. We pride ourselves on safety and our Basic Scaffolding Course is no exception. You will learn how to keep yourself and others safe
