Setting up scaffolding up to 9 meters height

Within the European Union about 500 000 persons fall from scaffolding every year. 40 000 of these are seriously hurt, seriously enough to need to be home from work for several days. Tragically about 1000 die every year. Therefore the Swedish Work Environment Authority has decided that those who set up, change or dismantle scaffolding must have completed an approved course, which is verified by a certificate. The course is based on AFS 2004:4-Scaffolding.
