On December 7, 2008 Alcides Moreno, working on a scaffold, toppled 47 floors from a New York City skyscraper because he ignored safety procedures designed to prevent such an accident. Miraculously, Moreno, despite breaking most of the bones in his body, survived the 500 foot fall but learned the hard way to never take shortcuts while working on a scaffold.

Because of the dangerous nature of working on a scaffold, OSHA has enacted safety rules designed specifically for workers who make a living on such a dangerous support system. This video outlines various procedures to keep you safe on a scaffold, including its proper assembly, best placement of a scaffold on the worksite, the optimum methods to handle tools while working on a scaffold, and fall prevention.

Use this online training video to help employees understand scaffold assembly and the safe work practices to keep everyone safe while working on suspended scaffolding.
