Safe access for mobile scaffolds? Not by climbing this type of end frame. Note the trip hazards caused by tools and power cords. This scaffold is inside a clarifier tank at a water treatment plant under construction, and is erected over an approximately 4-foot x 10-foot floor opening, which adds another 10 feet to the fall height (6 feet + 10 feet = 16 feet).
