OSHA Approved???

OSHA Approved???

How many morons does it take to change a light bulb?  A Ladder on top of another ladder but being held up wih some 2×4’s, oh yeah I think OSHA might have an issue with this.

  1. Hopefully Mr. Gravity and Mr. Darwin will have their way with him and he won’t reproduce.

  3. This is actually called a half scaffold. it is a shortcut to buying the scaffolding ladders that are adjustable. This may not be OSHA approved, but it is for sure a technique used by many remodelers when having to work cathedral ceilings on a circular or otherwise obstructive staircase.

  5. And for the record, they are 2×6’s mot 2×4’s.

  7. I prefer to use my adjustable legged walkups platforms, they have a textured surface and are OSHA approved, with each leg being independently adjustable and I also own the tall leg set that lets me set them up so I have a 5.5′ tall platform to work off of. But for a situation such as this and or when having to work on stairs they are the safest easiest to use. But I value mine and my workers health and safety.

  9. 2×6’s??? Try 2×8’s. I wouldn’t call this the half scaffolding you’re referencing; the first 2×8 is about to fall off the platform, this is just plain crazy! Although I’ve done worse on a painting job or two…

  11. Nah, it’s cool, there’s a handrail on that 4-step staircase he’s working on.

    BTW, I’m not a maintenance engineer or anything, but shouldnt he turn the light OFF before changing it out? Just a thought…
