Title: Slide 17

Type: Image Slide


Gaps as big as three feet where the scaffold platform goes around the column create fall hazards. There are also no midrails or toeboards.

Speaker Notes:

NOTE: This scaffold is set up inside an atrium, and therefore the fall hazards range from 10 feet toward the curtain wall to over 30 feet toward the interior of the atrium. What can be done to protect employees?
