When you see a hazard… Take time to correct it. What’s wrong with this photo? These workers are not protected from being struck by falling objects because they are working around/under other workers and not wearing hardhats. The scaffold has no guardrails (required at a height of 10 feet or more, but recommended at a height of 6 feet or more) and the worker on the scaffold is not using any fall protection. The scaffold does not have cross bracing on the ends. What’s wrong with this photo? No stair railing on open side (hand rail and midrail); No midrail on existing guardrail; Door looks like it is boarded up and does not have a handle on the outside---raises question as to whether it meets requirements for an exit door (outward swinging, opens with a minimum force, panic hardware preferred); Suggested improvement: install light and/or put glow-in-the-dark stair tread strips to reduce potential fall hazard at night & color code physical hazards with yellow paint, including difference in elevation at threshold to door & at edge of sidewalk. What’s wrong with this photo? Exit must not be blocked by storage. Exit door must swing outward. Exit door should have panic hardware or open with minimal force. Looks like there are unapproved temporary wires run from electric line servicing exit sign. Other observations: a) poor housekeeping; b) uncovered telecommunications panel and disorderly arrangement of phone lines. What’s wrong with this photo? These cords are: improperly wired directly to the electrical circuit; are not protected by a GFCI; are two-wire cords that are not grounded; and are not rated for hard- or extra-hard service, as required on a construction site. What’s wrong with this photo? Improper storage: Access to sprinkler system valves blocked; Cylinders are not allowed within 20 feet of valves; and Combustible storage is not allowed within 20 feet of propane cylinders. What’s wrong with this photo? Exposure to Falls Three men are on a ladder designed to be climbed by 1 man. All 3 men have their center of gravity outside the confines of the ladder. Man on left has only 2 points of contact with the ladder instead of 3. There is no type of fall protection. What’s wrong with this photo? This is a confined space and must be marked with a DANGER or CAUTION sign. If someone is below ground, there should be a trained attendant with rescue equipment. This type of entry would require a permit, since the hazard of methane or hydrogen sulfide could exist. If no one is in the confined space, it should not be left open with a ladder, since anyone (including a child) could enter it without authorization. What’s wrong with this photo? 3 OSHA Violations: No guardrails around any working level. No safe means of access. Materials are not allowed to be stored on scaffolds in excess of supplies needed for immediate operations (per 1926.250(b)(5).
