Danger of Falling Scaffolding Tubes

Graham Marshall - Thursday, September 20, 2012

The dangers associated with not having, or not following proper procedures and not undertaking a "Stepback" using our unique Think 6, Look 6 hazard identification process are highlighted again by this safety alert from Woodside and APPEA.

The alert shows how a length of scaffolding tubing was allowed to fall between decks when procedures were not followed, supervision was not appropriate and Stepback was not being done.

Thankfully no one was harmed during this high-potential incident so luck was on the side of Woodside today.

Without a good use of Think 6, Look 6, they might not be so lucky next time.
