Construction safety, fall protection: Worker is contorting himself reaching with his arm and foot around side of ladder, without using his fall protection. Ladder is itself a hazard, because it is supported at top by a rung against the vertical edge of the gang form. It has a loose wire tied around it and concrete bulkhead at top that provides no useful safety. Practice and OSHA law require top of the ladder to be supported equally by its two side rails. Worker carries two safety lanyards and hooks, attached to full body harness and hooked temporarily at his right chest. Michigan 2006.
