Can you spot the common safety mistakes in these two pictures? Safety mishaps in the areas of fall protection and scaffolding are prevalent in the construction industry. It is important that certain procautions are utilized to avoid injury and/or death on a jobsite. 

In the top photo you will notice that the workers aren't using any kind of fall protection. Safety harnesses, nets, and guard rails are essential in avoiding a fall. According to OSHA standards, fall protection is required when work is being performed more than six feet above the ground. It is important for everyone on the jobsite to understand the fall protection basics and to put them to practice when necessary.

In the bottom photo you will notice an example of poor scaffolding. A section of scaffolding is barely balancing on a small piece of wood instead of being secured. When setting up, scaffolding should be plumb, level and stable.OSHA requires that scaffolds be designed by a qualified person and be inspected at least once each work shift by a competent person. Stationary scaffolds over 125 feet in height and rolling scaffolds over 60 feet in height must be designed by a professional engineer.
