    When used, work platforms must meet the specific requirements of 1600(d).
    response:
  • Leads

    Leads shall be provided with a continuous ladder or horizontal bracing that is uniformly spaced at intervals no greater than 18 inches and the leads shall be equipped with adequate anchorages for use with a personal fall protection system.

    The operator of the equipment will apply all brakes and necessary safety switches to prevent uncontrolled motion of the equipment before an employee may access the leads. 1600(f)
