Scaffolding Training


Is your company meeting the legal requirements for scaffolding? Scaffolding is inherently a high risk occupation, more so for workers who are not properly trained. Failure to comply with legislation could cost a company dearly, especially in the event of a fatality where proof of accredited scaffolding training cannot be demonstrated. Meet the requirements today and call Sizani Training Centre for all your scaffolding training needs.
