Title: Slide 14
Type: Photo slide
This directional change is not at a right angle. The planks that form the change need to be laid first, to help prevent plank displacement. This scaffold also has unsafe guardrails, in that there are no midrails or toeboards, and the toprail is held together with #9 wire. Also, the toprail has a gap between the rail and the platform.
[Includes an image of an improper directional change in the scaffolding]
