Make sure scaffold hoists retain enough suspension rope.

(1) You must make sure the suspension rope on winding drum hoists is long enough to wrap around the drum at least four times when the scaffold is at its lowest point of travel.
(2) You must make sure the suspension rope on hoists that do not use a winding drum:
(a) Is long enough to allow the scaffold to be lowered to the level below without the rope end passing through the hoist; or
(b) Has the rope end configured, or uses other means, to prevent it from passing through the hoist.
