Title: Slide 11

Type: Image Slide


This is the same scaffold as shown in slide No. 10. The scaffold is approximately 6-feet high and is erected over an access pit (4' x 10'). There is a 10 foot fall hazard caused by the unguarded pit and therefore the total fall hazard is = 16 feet to the lower level (e.g.; the bottom of the pit). Fall protection is required for this 6-foot tall mobile scaffold, because the total fall distance is greater than 10 feet.
