Snapped in what looks like the UK, a team working at height with a scissor lift and telehandler, but not using them as intended.
For some reason the crew has lifted a stowed 26ft scissor lift using a compact telehandler in order to reach a light at the top of the wall at a height of around five metres.
While perhaps not the riskiest form of working at height we have ever seen, one has to wonder why they involved the telehandler at all? Unless the ground was sloping by more than a couple of degrees locking out the scissor lift tilt alarm, preventing the platform from lifting? Or perhaps it was done for greater speed between lights or work?
Fact is this is hardly an example of good or safe working practice, and yet at least five people are involved with the work and have 'gone along' with a method which could have resulted in serious injury or death if the telehandler operator had inadvertently operated a function unintentionally or in the wrong direction.
