    Title: Single-point adjustable
    Type: Text Slide with Image

    • Supporting rope between scaffold and the suspension device must be kept vertical unless:
      - Rigging has been designed by a qualified person
      - Scaffold is accessible to rescuers
      - Support rope is protected from rubbing during direction changes, and
      - Scaffold is positioned so swinging cannot bring it into contact with other surfaces

    Speaker Notes:

    A single-point adjustable scaffold consists of a platform suspended by one rope from an overhead support and equipped with means to permit the movement of the platform to desired work levels. The most common among these is the scaffold used by window washers to clean the outside of a skyscraper (also known as a boatswain's chair).
