This course can be combined with the 4-Hour Supported Scaffold User and Refresher course to renew the SST card for an additional 5 years. 

This course provides information and training on how to recognize fall hazards on job sites and methods for minimizing and preventing those hazards from leading to on-the-job injuries.
