The approach is to cover hazard identification, avoidance, and control, along with practical information on safe work practices.
Specific topics covered in this course include:
- Course Objectives

- Scissor Lift Fatalities and Injuries
- Classification of Hazards
- Operation on uneven surfaces
- Fall prevention and protection
- Overloading, overextension, and electrocution hazards
- Operation procedures in inclement weather

Retraining is required in at least the following situations:
(1) Where changes at the worksite present a hazard about which an employee has not been previously trained; or
(2) Where changes in the types of scaffolds, fall protection, falling object protection, or other equipment present a hazard about which an employee has not been previously trained; or
(3) Where inadequacies in an affected employee's work involving scaffolds indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite proficiency.
It is our recommendation that workers be retrained at least every three years.
