Falls are still the leading cause of death in construction and as such OSHA promotes fall safety heavily. EHS Today staffer Sandy Smith explains the safety precautions that need to be taken when working from great heights including ladders, roofs, and scaffolds.
Smith uses a photo gallery to demonstrate some of the best and work practices to keep in mind when working from heights:
The majority of the photos in this gallery were submitted to Little Giant Ladders for their #FailFriday Facebook feature. Used here with permission, the workers in these photos either did not receive appropriate training, did not have appropriate equipment or were not properly supervised to ensure they were using equipment appropriately as they were trained to do.
