Scaffolding is common equipment used in various industries, most notably construction, to give workers safe access to elevated areas. But scaffolding itself can pose a hazard to workers if, say, it isn’t erected properly or is placed on uneven ground. So it’s critical that you ensure that all scaffolding is inspected before workers use it.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
