Most Common Construction Accident Injuries:
  1. Slip and falls, usually caused by an unsafe work area.
  2. Falling on stairwells with no guardrail.
  3. Stepladders, usually when not used correctly or used for improper activities.
  4. Fall from roofs, when no fall protection is provided.
  5. Falls from scaffolding, esp. without proper scaffolding according to state regulations.

That must be on private property. I cant see a power company or City/County/State employee being allowed to do that instead of using a bucket. Never-mind. I just noticed the signs. It may be another country.

He is using a safety harness so it must be ok.
I saw that too. Funny part is that the harness appears to be tethered to the ladder. Meanwhile physics say there must be a second guy at the base of that ladder AND that railing must be epicly strong.

We had to get rid of a new hire last week. No steel toe shoes for him, and he said he would quit before he wore them.
He meant it.

That guy under the truck will leave some people trying to say something nice at his funeral while trying to ignore the elephant in the room.
