Slide 47


TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Other Work Methods
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    Employers also have the option of having workers work from scaffolds (in compliance with Subpart L), ladders (in compliance with Subpart X) or aerial lifts (in compliance with 29 CFR 1926.453) instead of complying with 1926.501(b)(13).

    At the bottom left is slide number 47.

    At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.

    Speaker Notes:

    Now we all know the first principle of mishap prevention is to "eliminate" the hazard whenever possible. If you can't eliminate it, you then have to minimize its effect. We cannot eliminate working at heights in construction, but using ladders, scaffolds and aerial lifts can help employers eliminate some falls from six feet or higher.
