Safety in working high level but out of reach
What kind of accident is about to happen?When trying to attach furring strips (the base materials for a wall) to a steel frame, the worker is extending his reach from an aerial lift while working alone.
Can you predict what's about to happen?
Look what happened!The worker reached out too far from the work platform, allowed his upper body to extend beyond the handrail, and fell out of the bucket.
Tips for preventing similar accidents1. Place the aerial lift at a height and location where work can be performed comfortably, and ensure that work can be performed safely from that location.
2. Always use a safety belt when performing aerial work, even on the working platform.
3. Ensure that all relevant workers are familiar with the work procedures for performing aerial work.
