Here in the US we have laws governed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which are meant to protect workers from unsafe conditions. But apparently OSHA is on holiday right now. Meanwhile the rest of the world needs to be adopting some safety standards too, or they are going to be ending up headlining the Darwin Awards.
Take this photo for example: “Let me just drive this forklift off the dock… while carrying a bomb!”
Just imagine what this little Asian guy looks like when he takes off his shirt! He must be built like a mini Schwarzenegger.
Do you think his last words were, “Let me just get this last weld on the gas tank…”
Let me get this straight. He’s going to paint the entire side of a building with a brush, by hand, on ladders lashed together 4 stories high?
Note: Bare feet on aluminum ladder sitting in pool of water with electrical cord dangling above. Nice.
Let’s assume that’s all styrofoam strapped to the bicycle. What happens if a strong wind blows?
Ok. 10 feet away is what looks like a 4″ pipe that goes up well beyond the roof. Why not just climb it?
What the hell is he pointing at, and where does he think he’s going?
Now what? The second forklift driver isn’t even at the controls!
Do you think the rich guy that hired them to trim the hedges is fully insured?
These guys don’t look like they work for the electric company to me.
