TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:
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.
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?
[Includes an image of scaffolding with large unsafe gaps]
