Avoiding such hazards may seem like common sense, but a moment of distraction around an uncovered floor opening can end in disaster. About 40% of serious injuries mostly in building construction are due to falls from a certain level to another.


IDENTIFY CONTROLS

Floor openings or holes should be barricaded with solid physical barriers to keep workers out. Install guardrails is the best solution. In situations where guardrails can't be installed, the next best option is to cover the openings or holes. Ensure that the cover must be completely cover the opening, securely fastened, capable of supporting at least a 150 kilo load that may be encountered on the worksite and labelled "Floor Opening, Do Not Remove" or "Danger! Opening - Do Not Remove! Do Not Load!

If you must work on or near an unprotected opening it is a requirement that you have to wear safety harness securely fastened/fixed to a suitable anchor point.

  1. The FakeWatchBuster does it with humor and he does it with wit, but he is also rolex replica merciless in his delivery of justice. He calls himself the "horological Batman" and he is the hero in the night calling out the criminals of copying who would have you believe they are wearing authentic watches. If anything, the FakeWatchBuster is a hero because he replica watches sale defends us against fake people. Does wearing a fake watch make you a bad person? Probably not as much as wearing a rolex replica sale watch in order to convince your followers that you are richer or more rolex replica successful than you actually are. A major target of the FakeWatchBuster's attention are people and artists in the hip-hop community who attempt to brazenly share obnoxiously lavish (and arguably poor taste) replica watches sale lifestyles. Whether or not these individuals can afford these luxury items and lifestyles is not the issue.
