Scaffolding inspection and scaffolding training are fundamental to fulfilling Work-at-Height regulations and scaffolding certification. Statutory regulations also require every employer to ensure that no person engages in any activity involving work at height (including organisation, planning and supervision), or who handles any equipment intended for such use unless he or she is competent to do so.


Scaffolding is one of the highest risk occupations in the construction industry, and every year there are numerous injuries and even fatalities caused by scaffold-related accidents.

Applus+ helps our clients to minimise the risk of accidents by providing expert scaffolding training and certification at onshore and offshore locations for all categories of scaffolders:

  • Basic scaffolding awareness training
  • Scaffolding supervisor training
  • Scaffolding inspector training
  • Scaffolding safety awareness for supervisory /inspection

All Applus+ scaffold training courses are delivered to NASC, TG20-13, SG4-10, SG6, BS EN 12811, Scafftag System, CISRS and CITB standards. The scaffold training courses  therefore conform to all relevant British and European Standards for scaffolding works, which are also approved throughout the Middle East and are QP approved for the Qatar market.

Other scaffolding services provided by Applus+ include:

  • Scaffolding Inspection of erected structures
  • Scaffolding load tests
  • Scaffold handover certificate as safe-for-use
  • Certification for material conformity to all relevant scaffolding safety standards before deployment to site
  • Verification of design drawings with their calculations

The scaffolding inspection and training service is aimed at managers, supervisors and operators who are responsible for inspecting scaffolds and completing reports in accordance with statutory regulations.

Scaffolding inspection and training is required in any industry when designing, erecting, dismantling, altering and supervising scaffolding operations.


Applus+ scaffolding training courses provide an in-depth understanding of scaffolding components, forms of construction and inspection procedures, including the development of core management skills required to supervise safe scaffolding operations.

The scaffolding inspection services at Applus+ are vital to clients who do not have a certified, in-house scaffold inspector, and our services help to avoid unsafe scaffold structures being used. Our verification of scaffold design drawings and calculations service also helps to ensure that structures are able to withstand the requisite load.
