Who Needs Scaffold Appreciation Awareness Training

People who work off or with fixed scaffolding which can apply to may trades.  It teaches how to work safely and avoid incidents to themselves, their work mates and anyone near scaffolding.  For people wanting to carry out weekly scaffolding inspections we recommend the scaffold inspection course.

He's extremely knowledgable due to his years on the tools.
