Without the anchor ramp in place, moving the platform is dangerous . Both anchor ramps installed. Safe operation assured.
MAST CLIMBER AND SCAFFOLDING CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT
Recently we created a set of animations and storyboards for Raynes McCarty in Philadelphia, for litigation involving a construction worker who fell 100 feet to his death. In this accident, a mast climbing system was being used to transport workers and materials up and down the face of a building they were working on. Their work platform glided up and down into position on the twin support masts. The mast areas were open on both sides with no guards when changing positions, creating a hazardous work area.
An optional “anchor ramp” should have been installed to protect the workers as the platform went up and down. Our brief was to demonstrate how the optional anchor ramp system could be installed and operated to provide a safe work environment. Working with an expert engineer, site plans and manufacturer's specifications of the anchor ramp, we built a "working" model of the worksite to demonstrate it's safety and efficiency.
