Safety Alert! Swing Fall

November 1, 2017 | By: ATD

This week’s safety alert is focused on Swing Fall

A swing fall hazard occurs when a worker is working outside of their anchorage point safe zone (when the anchorage is not positioned directly overhead). When the worker is outside of this zone, the “pendulum effect” can occur. This effect will cause the worker to swing when they fall, and possibly strike objects during the process. Serious injuries or death can occur if the fallen worker strikes hard enough.

This week’s safety alert is focused on stop logs! What even is that?

WELL, a stop log is used to identify an edge, like in a loading dock for example, where the ground drops to a different height. This can be very dangerous for anyone working or walking near the edge if they are not paying attention, especially if they are working on equipment.
