Setting up scaffolding up to 9 meters height

Within the European Union about 500 000 persons fall from scaffolding every year. 40 000 of these are seriously hurt, seriously enough to need to be home from work for several days. Tragically about 1000 die every year.


All who set up, change and dismantle scaffolding with a height of 2-9 meters or those who lead this type of work.


No prerequisits required

Therefore the Swedish Work Environment Authority has decided that those who set up, change or dismantle scaffolding must have completed an approved course, which is verified by a certificate. The course is based on AFS 2004:4-Scaffolding.

– Self study material which is acquired, at the latest, one week before course start. This material takes about 4-8 hours to read through.
– The course runs for one day in the form of discussion questions done in small groups. The answers to the discussion question is recorded.
– The course day ends with a test.
