Basic Scaffold

Workers who need to exercise judgement to sling loads or who direct crane movement from outside the crane operator’s full view (such as with whistle signals or radio)

Dogging consists of two main aspects:

  • The slinging techniques used for moving a load (including the selection and inspection of lifting equipment).
  • The directing of a hoist or crane operator who is moving a load, when the load is out of the operator’s view.

Simply put, someone who engages in dogging is called a Dogger.

Course Description:

This course, titled ‘Basic Scaffolding Training,’ outlines the essential skills needed to assemble, modify, and dismantle scaffolding structures at an introductory level. It covers tasks related to working with modular or pre-fabricated scaffolds, lightweight materials hoists with a maximum working load of 500kg, ropes and pulleys, safety net installations, static lines, and specialized bracket scaffolds such as those used in tank and formwork applications. Completion of this course fulfills licensing requirements.

Upon completion of the course, participants will acquire the following skills and knowledge:

  1. Understanding of General Safety Practices: Identifying common hazards associated with scaffolding and creating scaffolding plans to ensure safety.
  2. Knowledge of Scaffolding Types: Recognizing different components of scaffolds and their functionalities.
  3. Mastery of Working Platforms: Understanding load requirements and classifications for working platforms.
  4. Familiarity with Foundations: Understanding the principles of scaffolding foundation construction.
  5. Knowledge of Structural Stability: Ensuring the stability and integrity of scaffold structures.
  6. Understanding Rigidity: Implementing measures to maintain the rigidity of scaffolds during operations.
  7. Proficiency in Scaffold Access: Providing safe access points to scaffolds for workers.
  8. Expertise in Various Scaffold Types: Including modular, frame, mobile, trestle, bracket, and birdcage scaffolds.
  9. Handling Ancillary Equipment: Proper usage of safety harnesses, maintaining records, and operating gin wheels.
  10. Competence in Bends & Hitched Techniques: Safely securing scaffold components using bends and hitched methods.
  11. Knowledge of Industrial Safety Nets: Understanding the installation and function of safety nets in industrial settings.
  12. Mastery of Cantilevered Platform Hoists: Operating materials hoists for cantilevered platforms safely.
  13. Proficiency in Inspection & Equipment Maintenance: Conducting regular inspections and performing maintenance on scaffolding equipment to ensure safety and functionality.

The outcome will include the issuance of a nationally recognized Statement of Attainment and a High-Risk Work Licence (class SB) through the relevant Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) authority in your jurisdiction, such as SafeWork or WorkSafe.
