  4. 4. Luís Lavado / <ul><li>An under-bridge inspection vehicle is a specialized bucket truck with three or more booms designed to reach under a bridge while positioned on the deck. Standard features include: </li></ul><ul><li>a one ( or two ) person bucket on the end of the final boom; </li></ul><ul><li>a rotating turret to provide maximum flexibility; </li></ul><ul><li>outriggers with wheels to allow for moving the vehicle during inspection activities; </li></ul><ul><li>a telescoping third boom to extend and contract, allowing for greater reach under the bridge. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Luís Lavado COLLECTIVE AND PERSONAL Protection EQUIPMENT There are several types of personal fall protection systems and equipment: <ul><li>Work Positioning systems and equipment enable the user to work in tension or suspension to prevent or limit a fall, e.g. a boatswain’s chair or linesman. A back-up system is needed in case the main support fails; </li></ul>
  7. 7. Luís Lavado This bridge inspector is using a boatswain’s chair to inspect a river pier of the Judge Graf Bridge
  8. 8. Luís Lavado COLLECTIVE AND PERSONAL Protection EQUIPMENT <ul><li>Rope Access systems use two ropes, a working rope and a safety rope, each secured to a reliable anchor. The user’s harness is attached to both ropes in such a way they can get to and from the work area and the risk of falling is prevented or limited. This type of system could be used to access the side of a tall building where a cradle cannot be used; </li></ul>
  9. 9. Luís Lavado Rope access uses ropes as the primary means of supporting workers. The support of the rope eliminates the likelihood of a fall, and a back-up fall protection system is employed in the unlikely failure of the primary means of support. This redundant system is achieved by using two ropes - a working line and a safety line.
  10. 10. Luís Lavado COLLECTIVE AND PERSONAL Protection EQUIPMENT <ul><li>Fall Arrest systems and equipment limit the impact force of a fall on the user and prevent them hitting the ground. The anchor point should be as high as possible above the feet of the user to limit the distance of the fall. Equipment should be regularly inspected for wear and damage. </li></ul>
