This standard covers the training requirements for a scaffolding operative to be able as a member of a team, to erect, alter and dismantle the scaffolds safely and in their correct sequence. The trained operative will also be suitably qualified to lead operations as a charge hand in a scaffold gang carrying out all types (Basic and Advanced) of scaffolding works.
