Risks Involved When Working From A Height
Some jobs are relatively easy and safe to perform such as balancing a company’s books of accounts in an air-conditioned room and on a very comfortable office chair where the only real risk is being berated by the boss for putting an extra “0” on an account that’s only supposed to reflect $1,000.00. Then there are jobs that literally involve high risks, such as working on highly elevated scaffoldings for construction work or cleaning the windows of a high-rise building. But despite the high risk of accidents from working from heights, such types of jobs still need to get done. To paraphrase Lance Armstrong’s quote, if you’ll always worry about falling off a scaffolding or high platform, you’d never get on it and get the job done. And the best way to get over this fear is by knowing specific risks that are involved when working from heights so that you can do something to either minimize the chances of such risks manifesting and mitigating the impacts of such when they do happen.
