    Title: Slide 33
    Type: Photo Slide

    This is a great example of what can happen when construction workers fail to investigate the site where their scaffold is being erected, and base plates are not used. The scaffold in question (now taken down) punched a hole through the downtown sidewalk. The workers failed to realize that the sidewalk was only made from blacktop, and it had a basement under it. EXAMPLE OF POINT LOADING!!

    [Includes an image of a hole in the sidewalk caused by point loading]
