Guarding Floor Holes and Wall Openings (US)

Guarding Floor Holes and Wall Openings (US)

When you are on a site, you may get so used to working around floor holes and wall openings that you feel overly confident about your ability to avoid them. Take this true story, for example. A worker was blocking windows, which involved installing a wooden frame around the space where a window will be placed. To install the wood, he removed a rail from a wall opening that was in his way. He lost his balance and fell 15 feet to the ground. Unfortunately, he was killed. This worker had probably performed this task many times before and never had an accident or even a close call. Please don't ever forget the danger when you are working around floor holes and wall openings. It is worth your time to take safety precautions. Hopefully, you won't need them! But you will be glad they are there if you ever do
