Why take a scaffold safety quiz

No one ever thinks that a scaffold will collapse – until it does. That’s why it’s so important for workers to be aware of the dangers of scaffolds and how to safely use them. In the United States, scaffold-related accidents account for around 20% of all construction accidents. That’s why it’s critical that workers are properly trained in scaffold safety. scaffolds can be dangerous if not properly erected, maintained, or used. Workers can be seriously injured or killed if they fall from a scaffold. In addition, scaffolds can be very unstable in windy conditions, so it’s important to take precautions when using them. That’s why we’ve put together this scaffold safety quiz to ensure that your workers are up-to-date with the latest regulations and safety practices. And the best part is that your team’s can access this scaffold safety quiz on their preferred device whenever they have 5 minutes to spare – whether that’s on their commute, in between tasks, or before they finish up for the day.
