About this Program

If you live in a metropolitan area, it is highly probable that you do not think twice before walking under or near scaffolds on a daily basis.  It is also very likely that you are unaware of the dangers that they pose to its workers and oblivious pedestrians.  In this program, Program Attorney Kyle Robinson and David Doddridge, a forensic expert in construction site safety, engage in a lively discussion of the scaffolding safety regulations that have been issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”).  The course begins with an introduction to the various types of scaffolding and the common risks. Following that, the discussion focuses on how construction site managers can best protect their employees from such dangers and how to construct and operate scaffolds in accordance with OSHA’s regulations.  The program concludes with general pointers on how scaffolding-related accidents can be avoided, what protocol should be in place when an accident occurs, and how scaffolding experts can help with an investigation.  The thorough explanations, examples, and colorful illustrations make this CLE great for attorneys interested in learning more about scaffold construction site safety in preparation for their next construction accident case deposition.
