  • Proper training must be provided so that the capable person is able to take prompt action to eliminate predictable hazards and should be within line of site of erection, dismantling, or alteration activity.
  • Tools and supplies should be organized whenever possible. Install a 2×4 toe board to prevent items from falling.
  • Its important to identify possible hazards and solutions prior to the start of work. Working near power lines? Keep scaffolding far enough away to prevent electrocution risks.
  • Overloading can lead to the Collapse of the scaffold because of the loss of balance. It should be always be avoided.
  • Workers must not be permitted in winds above 30 MPH.
  • Spaces between scaffold planks must be no more than one inch.
