Scaffolds have to be constructed and sometimes when they are improperly installed the scaffolding may collapse causing death or injury to anyone on, beneath, or around the scaffold. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) lists over 65% of construction workers currently use scaffolds in their daily occupation. Nearly 50 people die each year because of collapsed scaffolds, and over 4,000 are injured on or as a direct cause of a faulty, defective, or improperly used scaffolds.
