Code of Practice for Access & Working Scaffolds Update 2018

Training Course Information

The updated Code of Practice for Access & Working Scaffolds will be released in October 2018 as an updated version of the existing 2008 Code of Practice. CIF Learning & Development are planning a number of half-day briefing sessions regionally to advise our members of the key changes and how these will impact site scaffolding activities.

The Code of Practice for Access & Working Scaffolds will go live approximately within two weeks of it official launch date, so there is a limited window of opportunity to get to grips with the key changes.

Our Tutor

The briefing will be led by Mr Richard O’Mahony who is a lead tutor on the CIF Management & Inspection of Scaffolding program & the CIF IOSH Managing Safely in Construction Scaffolding & Working at Heights modules. Richard is seen as a highly competent and effective professional who will bring delegates through the key changes within the revised 2018 Code of Practice providing clarify on how these key changes impact work on site.
