Scaffolds (Staging) » Horse Scaffolding


A horse scaffold is a scaffold for light or medium duty; it is composed of "saw horses" supporting a work platform. [29 CFR 1915.71(g)] Note: Newer methods of ship construction have greatly reduced the use of these scaffolds. However, these scaffolds are primarily used during the construction and repair of boats.

Before reviewing this section, refer to the General Scaffolding Requirements.
