Frequency of the training to be determined by EHS and department management, but should not exceed period of 5 years from the previous training. Refresher training also to be provided whenever there is an indication that the individual in question, whether they be a competent person, erector, user, or qualified person, exhibits a lack of understanding of the manufacturer, local, state, and federal requirements associated with the inspection, erection, or use of scaffolds. Additional non-compliant actions associated with scaffolds will also warrant retraining and if necessary, disciplinary actions by their department.
