16hr Suspended Scaffold training is required of anyone who uses, operates, or rides on supspended "swing/hanging" scaffolds. This includes rope scaffolds, electric scaffolds, multipoint scaffolds, and single point rigs.
When suspended scaffolds are rigged in NYC they must be installed by a company with a special rigger license. This 16hr certificate allows you to install, modify, dismantle, and use any and all types of suspended scaffolds and roof hoists with a capcity under 2000lbs.
This class is a discussion, power point, and hands on training for the scaffolds, fall protection, and basic rigging including knot tying. Workers are required to take a full 16hr class every 4 years.
