Description of this FunctionDescription of this Function
Background

The Municipal Scaffolding Inspectors Board was established under section 177A of the Local Government Act 1966 (No.7495) which was proclaimed on 14 December 1966.

The Board was superseded in 1974 by the Board of Examiners (Scaffolding). The Board of Examiners (Scaffolding) was constituted under the Scaffolding Act 1971 which became effective from 1 August 1974. The prime function of the Board was to hold examinations and issue certificates of qualification as a scaffolding inspector and certificates of competency as a scaffolder or temporary scaffolders permit. The Board could also conduct inquiries into the capabilities of scaffolding inspectors and suspend or cancel certificates if needed. Appeals against determinations of the Board could be heard by the County Court.

This Act was repealed by the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1985 with the Schedules to the Act providing the authority for the continuance of Boards of Examiners and the certification of practitioners. Responsibility for this Act and for licensing and certification services passed to the Victorian Workcover Authority in 1995.
