Lessons Learned - Body positioning while undertaking task

Whilst erecting a habitat, the injured party (IP) was tightening up a cable tie to secure a vertical section of timber to the handrail. At the time, the IP’s foot was placed in the gap between the scaffold and the main structure of steel work.

Whilst tightening the cable tie, the IP lost their balance causing them to trip over.  Due to the location of the IP’s foot between the scaffold and the main structure of steel work, the IP’s leg twisted; causing a shooting pain through their left knee.
