OSHA SHIB: Hazards of Using Job-Made Boxes/Baskets/Platforms




In several worksite incidents, workers have fallen from improperly secured and / or poorly constructed job-made boxes. Workers have also been injured when they were struck by or crushed beneath falling platforms. Workers in or on job-made boxes are usually not protected from falling by means of fall protection. A new OSHA Safety and Health Information Bulletin (SHIB 06-03-2021) addresses the hazards of job-made boxes – please see the link below. (Pictured is page 1 of the bulletin.)
