Staging, Railings, and Access

Previously, the author paid thousands of dollars in OSHA fines for fall-protection violations on this job site, because his crew was walking the top plates to set trusses and accessing the plate usingstepladders. Now the crew sets up OSHA-compliant scaffolding with railings and toeboards at the building eaves.

The crew uses extension ladders to access the staging.

At inside corners, the author uses the building’s side walls to support the staging planks.
