I saw the video feed on the news and the scaffold that was erected was not right I am a certified competent scaffold builder and have set many up inside and outside of these bins I feel for those that were injured but this couldnt have been set up by a competant crew as osha requires it to be.

If that scaffold wasn't built by an OSHA approved crew, then that will be a major lawsuit, and the company will be lucky to remain in business. The days of stretching a 2/12 between 2 stepladders is long since past.

Well, ok. Except when I need to get some work done and don't want to haul my ladder around. But I put it up, I use it, and I own it. So if I get hurt, I guess I'll just heve to sue myself.

Why were these men not tied off? I know that they were not and I can not understand how they find this to safe work surondings.

No you won,t. You will sue the people that owns the property, and i think that is wrong, because if you are a contractor you should know better, even if it takes more time.

Sorry, I was talking about doing work around my house. I should have been a little more specific.
