Accidental falls are one of the biggest risks in jobs relating to construction industry. Hundreds of fall cases are observed each year in the United States. These accidents occur due to unsafe working places. The United States Department of Labor regulates the use of equipment which may expose workers to fall accidents.
The nature of construction operations requires the use of scaffolds to reach places above ground. They are used as platforms to raise and support a worker, which otherwise would not be reachable without the use of such a suspended platform.
Suspended scaffolds are one of the widely used scaffolds. They are used to clean hotel windows and construction workers use them for high-rise building constructions. Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA) defines suspended scaffolds as two-point adjustable suspension scaffolds, hung by ropes or cables connected to stirrups at each end of the platform.
The obvious requirements dictate that scaffolds should always be suitable and sufficient for a worker to stand on. It should be constructed with quality materials that can bear the strength of even an obese person, all while providing a safe and secure platform. However, unfortunately, operations involving the use of suspended scaffolding do not always follow precautions and safety regulations provided by OSHA.
Deploying safety protocols is part of the solution to scaffold safety, unless competent persons and trained persons exist. Employees should be made aware to the hazards of their work environment, especially for working with heights, which includes scaffolding safety.
Competent persons are highly trained personnel that carry out inspections during day-to-day activities to determine potential safety and health risks.
Anchoring the Scaffold
The first step towards a safe platform to work on is securing the scaffold to a safe and secure structure. It must be ensured that the structure is able to hold the weight of both the scaffold and its occupants.
For such reasons, do not anchor the tiebacks to vents, electrical conduits, or standpipes and other piping systems. They should be installed perpendicular to the face of the structure, unless opposing angle tiebacks are being used. There is prohibition against using single tiebacks installed at an angle.
Tiebacks must possess strength equivalent to suspension ropes and hoisting ropes.
