2. Not erected according to the specified standards, causing the whole scaffolding to fall outward or inward.

3. Personnel fall from the scaffold due to incomplete protective measures.

4. Improper organization of construction, resulting in injuries caused by falling objects.

5. Accidents caused by various unexpected factors.
