Stupid **** I see at work.

3 years ago I left a 27 year position as a field service technician in order to work for a large printing company that had been a long time customer of mine. Even though all maintenance personnel take continuing safety classes, all of that material is thrown out the window once we hit the plant floor. We run 24/7 and production numbers are #1 regardless of the fact that our T-shirts say “Safety First”. I will add photos as they occur.

Our electrician running conduit while he straddles the railings of a 25 foot scissor lift. No harness. Nothing roped off under the lift.

I probably shouldn't post a pic of the stupid stuff I see at work. People might recognize him...

Too lazy to go get his harness and put it on.
As an industrial service tech,most of my customers would kick my a$$ out within 2 minutes.

Sidenote to anyone using an harness:Make sure the legs straps are tight.Real tight if you don't want to become a woman in case of a fall.

The plant manager was standing closer to the action than me. Let a printing press run at only 80% then he has a problem.

Lets talk about the time as an intern I was volunteered to stuff insulation around an inconel pipe we had at 1500 F and could not afford to lose our run so we needed to replace the insulation where it fell out. Was about 50ft in the air. Had sunburn through a nomex suit, that was an experience.

I'm a Paramedic - It's job security for me. You wouldn't believe some of the stories I could tell where people have done stupid things and had to call 911. Every now and then I even get surprised.

There are no such things as lifting capacities when you can throw a 1000 lb roll of paper on top and hang 2 guys off the back.
