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.
