Scaffolds Glossary (1926.451)


OSHA’s Scaffolding regulation, 1926.451, is consistently on their list of the top ten cited standard violations. Given that, we thought we’d help you out by creating this interactive glossary of the terms OSHA defines in the definition. Hope you enjoy this and find and helpful.

A few important notes: The terms and definitions were taken directly from the text of the standard as printed on OSHA’s website in October, 2012. Convergence Training makes no claims regarding the accuracy of those definitions, or to keep this glossary up to date to match any changes OSHA makes after the date of this posting.
