When I think about this electrician standing in the top of his ladder to work on this electrical installation!

I chastised one of the guys at the shop where I work for just that OSHA violation. I pointed out that the top steps were clearly marked “NOT A STEP”. He told me he wasn’t using it as a step just a work platform!

Please cite the OSHA rule that has been violated here.

OSHA 1926 Subpart X, specifically 1926.1050, 1926.1053, and 1926.1060. OSHA 1910.333 could be cited, depending on circumstances.

Joe,
The other ladder is for higher jobs.
If you turn it upside down it fits perfectly on the top of the other one, and you're good for 3 more feet!!

Of course I can safely do it, because I know what I'm doing. It's others who shouldn't do it because they... oh sh_t whoooaaa, ouch!!!

OK, I was gonna stay out of this, but.....what the heck. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. I always used to tell everyone if I stand on that stupid warning, ya couldn't read it [Linked Image] . I had a service truck for about 5 years in the heart of the District of Columbia. Service call one day, standing on top of the ladder (of course), guy asks me if I know where I am, I replied with the address and suite #, he takes me around the corner to the plaque on the wall..... Headquarters of OSHA. I still stood on top of the ladder, but I did hurry up and get out of there.

The little ladder is a necessity here. The electrician needs it so that he can stand on top of it to work under the awning! [Linked Image]
