Workplace “Safety” Around the World

It’s interesting the type of photos we see from around the world denoting workplace “safety.”   There’s always an abundance of pictures from China. Always.  It’s pretty apparent that fall protection safety is often over looked in many countries.

This guy is sitting on a 2 x 4 while working on a cantilever deck with no fall protection equipment protecting him.  Is it possible for that board to move while the worker is leaning or moving one way or another?  The only good news is he has lots of people around him to call 911 if he falls.

The Safety Guru group on Flickr has an interesting collection of safety photos from different contributors in locations around the world. I visit occasionally to see what’s new. Unfortunately I only post photos with direct permission from the photographer so I can’t use the 3rd party photos from that group. But you still can check it out and laugh… or groan.

Today’s photo was provide by P. Adkin which he shot when he was in China. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your photo.

Fall Protection Do Not's

Stay safe!

Construction worker falls while working on platform.

Here is a great example of why fall protection is needed.  Do not try this at home.  I think this guy was texting during the fall protection training course.
