The employee was working off the side where the r ailing access was located. The new belt was sitting on a support structure appro ximately 13 feet off the ground. The method used to replace the old belt and ins tall the new belt involved having a round bar run through the center of the new belt which sat atop a support structure. The support structure had arms on both sides of the conveyor system.
