    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: 1926.451(c) Supported scaffolds (cont'd)
    Type: Text Slide with Image
    Content:

    • Must bear on adequate foundations
    • Unstable objects will not be used as working platforms
    • Plumbed and braced
    [Includes photo of scaffolding with improperly supported base plate]

    Speaker Notes:

    To avoid falls and other hazardous conditions, you should only work from scaffolds that are properly constructed and supported. If the scaffold does not have a stable foundation, then the scaffold may move or shift causing either the scaffold or you to fall.

    This scaffold has a base plate but it is not resting on a firm foundation. The base plate is resting on blocks, uneven timbers and planking over uneven ground.
