Scaffolds are hazardous and workers get hurt on them–or worse, get hurt when falling from them.
Given that, it makes sense to train employees to work on, with, and near scaffolds safely. And it makes sense to train them in a variety of ways.
One thing you can do to add a little fun to the training is to let your employees play this scaffolds training game. You may even give it a shot yourself!
It’s basically the same thing as the games on TV’s Wheel of Fortune, except (1) there’s no Vanna White and (2) it’s about scaffolds.
Have a fun time with this!
Before the fun begins, let’s cover some introductory stuff.
Fun Scaffolds Training Game: What’s In Store For You
It’s an interactive, online training game with questions about scaffolds and scaffolding safety.
Where the Questions (and Answers) Came From
We made this game by taking questions and answers from the Supported Scaffolding Safety online training that Convergence Training created. That scaffolds course is part of the a larger Safety & Health online training library by Convergence. Check the course list–you’ll be impressed by the number of titles.
You can watch the short video below to see a sample of the scaffolds class that we based the word game on.

What It Isn’t: An Earlier Scaffolds Training Game
If you’re a repeat reader of the Convergence Training blog, you may know that we’ve already made a scaffolds word game available to you. The game below is NOT that same game that you might have seen earlier.
The earlier game, which we published here and which we also included in our popular OSHA Word Game 10 Pack, was based on words taken directly from the scaffolding regulation (the definitions section).
By contrast, as you learned above, this game is based on terms and ideas taken from the scaffolding safety course by Convergence Training.
Obviously, the two word games cover similar ground, but the questions and answers are different.
Fun Scaffolding Training Game
Here’s the game. Have fun, enjoy yourself, and we hope you learn a thing or two.
QUICK TIP: If the word game doesn’t display well for you, try playing it in the Internet Explorer (IE) web browser.
