Health and Safety for Beginners

This photo is of a group of roofers working at a facility Ohio, USA. They were lifting a bottle of propane to the roof. Unfortunately, the spot they selected to set up their hoist was right over an entrance door to the plant. When this photo was taken, the hoist had jammed and one of the roofers was working to un-jamb the hoist rope while standing on a stepladder at roof’s edge, securely anchored by two fellow workers. No fall protection was used by any of the crew.

At this point, the contributor could no longer watch the possible fall, but contacted the owners to let them know what was occurring.
