What is Basic Scaffolding?
Scaffolding work includes putting up, changing or taking down of a temporary structure that is used to support a work platform, where a person or object could fall more than four metres.
To perform basic scaffolding duties you need to have a Basic Scaffolding - SB high risk work licence.
Basic scaffolding work includes:
- modular or prefabricated scaffolds
- cantilevered hoist with a maximum working load of 500 kg (materials only)
- gin wheels
- safety nets and static lines
- bracket scaffolds (tank and form work).
This unit specifies the outcomes required to erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding at the basic level, consisting of scaffolding work connected with the operation or use of modular or pre-fabricated scaffolds, cantilevered materials hoists with a maximum working load of 500kg, ropes and gin wheels, safety nets and static lines, and bracket scaffolds (tank and formwork) for licensing purposes.
This unit covers the scope of work to plan the job, select and inspect equipment, set up task, erect scaffold and scaffold equipment and dismantle scaffold and scaffold equipment.
This unit is based upon the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.
This unit in its current form it state and territory licensing requirements. Any alteration will result in a unit which is not acceptable to regulators for the purpose of licensing.
