Fatal 6 - HiPo: Scaffolder with no Fall Arrest Protection
While supervising a team of scaffolders erecting a scaffold, the individual climbed over a walkway handrail onto and along a structural beam with no fall arrest protection (at around 3m height) - the action was a shortcut to complete the task due to a challenge with the job.
- the individual involved was a fully trained advanced scaffolder,
- all permits, risk assessments and method statements in place
- the individual was fully aware that his actions were against training, method statements and not compliant with Work at Height Life Saving Rules and safe working practices
