Falls From Scaffold
Recently, a contracting group working on an above ground storage tank in Port of Wilmington had a worker fall 40 feet from scaffold assembly and lose his life. After investigations, the company was ordered to pay over $687,000 in fines for various safety violations.
It is imperative to have a scaffold safety program and at least one staff member designated as the "Competent and Qualified Scaffold Safety Representative. " Empower them to scrutinize all aspects of your safety program and include them in the selection of all scaffold equipment and scaffold plank.
