TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:
Title: 1926.451(c) Supported scaffolds (cont'd)
Type: Text Slide with Image
[Includes photo of a worker on the third level of a scaffold with no guardrails in place]
Guardrails are required for your protection. Never use a scaffold that does not have proper guardrails installed. Many workers will use a scaffold without guardrails because they think nothing will happen to them and the guardrails are not really needed. The guardrails may be the only thing between you and a fall to your death.
In this photograph, the worker is on the third level of the scaffold and working unsafely. There are no guardrails in place to prevent him from falling.
