Violations of these statutes can include:
- Letting employees work in areas under moving loads
- Faulty or inadequate toeboards, screens, or guardrails on scaffolds
- Hazardous areas not barricaded
- Lack of signage to warn workers of hazards
- Equipment failure such as wire rope, lifting hooks, chains, etc.
- Unsecured tools used for overhead work
- Inadequate installing or failure to install debris nets, catch platforms, or canopies
