Scaffold Inspection Training – HS16
Our Scaffold Inspection Training course is aimed at supervisors and managers who are designated as the competent person, responsible for the safety of scaffold structures and have a statutory responsibility for carrying out the safety inspections of scaffolding equipment.
“I had the pleasure of attending a training course this week with one of your, first aid, trainers Matt. I have been on a few first aid training courses, as they need renewing, and today I walked away from the course having enjoyed it thoroughly, learned new first aid tips and I now feel a more competent first aider at work. I will also feed back to school on how we can improve our practice and make us a safer school or more importantly more proactive when accidents happen. Matt is a real credit to Acorn”
