When you work at height, such as on scaffolding, it is necessary to take specific safety precautions to protect yourself and everyone else on a job site. This video offers some tips for staying safe on scaffolds and protecting the people below your scaffolding from injury.
Never work on a scaffold without a protective barrier on the edges. The barrier prevents items from falling on people below and protects you from stepping off the edge. Keep the work platform tidy, to reduce trip hazards. Check out the video for some additional helpful advice.
