    (the work) forces worker to act outside of working surface

    Hello everybody!

    Such protective belts shall be used when the work is performed at least 2 m high from ground or floor level and forces worker to act outside of working surface or act on ladder or clamp.

    Since it is a manual about elevation work, I would like to ask you about the meaning of "(the work) forces worker to act outside of working surface". He thinks it is illogical. I think it is on the contrary. The work makes a worker perform his/ker work beyond the working surface. By the working surface I mean a scaffolding and its structures.

    What do you think?

    The preceding text is as follows:

    Workers shall have knowledge of rules for using safety belts for elevation works.

    Do you mean that they have to work outside the limits of the scaffolding, like reaching or leaning over the protective railing?

    It's appallingly written, but it means that people working at a height of two metres or more must wear safety harnesses if they are working off the scaffolding, on a ladder for example.
