FULL TITLE: INSPECT ACCESS SCAFFOLDING
FIELD: Physical Planning and Construction
SUBFIELD: Physical Planning, Design and Management
UNIT STANDARD: 263205 [SAQA]
NQF LEVEL: 04 (6 credits)
DESCRIPTION: This scaffold inspection and safety course is designed for both novice and experienced scaffold inspectors who may be expected to inspect scaffolds while performing their daily duties in the working environment. Learners who achieve the course objectives will, upon completion, be able to correctly check an erected scaffold so that users of the scaffold are assured of a safe place to work. This also means that the register of scaffold inspections can be signed with confidence and that unsafe acts or conditions are avoided.
DURATION: Full Training (Novice): 3 Days
Recertification Training/Evaluation: 1 Day
Remedial Training: 1 Day
COURSE CONTENT: Introduction
    We discuss acronyms, pre-requirements for training
    objectives, accreditation and component identification.
Legislation: Occupational Health and Safety Act 85
    of 1993
    We take learners over the legal responsibilities in a     nutshell, Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993     and general safety regulations.
Foundation – system scaffolds
    This module discusses ground level, scaffolds beginning
    from supports other than the ground, equipment,
    sloping ground, inspection on foundations and the
    seven main scaffold inspection points.
Framework – system scaffolds
    We take learners through equipment such as tubes,
    fittings, standards/uprights, ledgers, transoms, bracing
    and tying in a scaffold to a structure.
Platforms
    This module discusses working platforms, platforms on     ramps and outrigger platforms.
Classification and access
Scaffold safety - general
    We cover non-scaffold materials, incompatible
    materials, incomplete scaffolds, non-standard tools, the
    the use of safety harnesses, non-slip platform surfaces,
    use of safety signs, scaffold inspections and other
    information from the SANS Code of Practice.
Extracts from the SANS 10085 - 2004
    We look at the pavement gantry and apron fan,
    cantilevered loading platforms, hoist towers and ladder
    access scaffolding.
Other types of scaffolds
    This module deals with the construction of frame
    scaffolds, interlocking frames, walk-through and part
    walk-through frames, system scaffolds, mobile
    scaffolds, trestle scaffolds, roof scaffolds, suspended
    scaffolds, suspended Bosuns chair and frame-for-frame
    scaffolding.
Safe working on scaffolds
    We discuss projections, alterations, floor openings     under the scaffold, hazardous weather, raising and     lowering material, use of Personal Protective Equipment     (PPE), protection of children, ladder beams, Cuplock     structural appraisal, Selflock ladder and access door     application, Cuplock mobile access tower and tie     methods, circular and access towers and mobile tower     construction, among others.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS: The company and learners must meet the conditions of the training requirements before theory training can be given.
