Ladder shocker!

It looks like these workers have put themselves at high risk by using whatever step ladders and materials they have found in their vehicles or around site. There are many safer alternatives to this flimsy setup, including:
  • Properly building a scaffold from the landing to the balcony
  • Working from a boom lift
  • Using a scissor lift with an extending deck.  
Falls from height continue to be the biggest killer of construction workers so never take short cuts with height safety.
