SCAFFOLDING BEST PRACTICE #47 – Staying “Current”
Scaffolding Regulations in every province/territory across Canada are widely varied and subject to revision on an ongoing basis. The CSA S269.2 Standard was newly published in 2016 and the CSA Z797 Standard was reaffirmed in 2014 – they are BOTH subject to revision/reaffirmation every 5 years. New scaffolding design/manufacturing, new safety technologies and new/merged companies happen in the scaffolding industry almost every day! Safe to say – STAYING CURRENT with all of these changes is a continuous job! Technical Update Training, association involvement and industry internet magazines and newsgroups are CRITICAL to staying current in today’s fast paced scaffolding industry.
