Safety-Failures That Would Make OSHA Weep

Physical work can place us in some compromising positions. It's probably not worth it to straddle two ladders in the wind or pull some OSHA-defying boldness just so you can finish a job 20 minutes faster, but it's everyone's personal choice to risk your life for a few dollars. What really sucks is when you are aware of basic safety standards and your boss says "listen buddy, we've been storing oily rags next to the fritzy boiler for years, so quit being a pansy. Now grease up your hands and plunge them into the crusher." So here's to misguided safety failures that OSHA would disapprove of

Misguided Safety Failures That OSHA Would Disapprove Of

Things need to get done, but sometimes we take shortcuts that result in safety failures of OSHA-defying boldness. Walk around any job site for any length of time and there's bound to be cartoonish moments of dudes climbing into running woodchippers, hanging off dangerous ledges with no safety gear, and strapping together ladders into a horrible yet effective "superladder." Sadly, time is money, and that time gets turned into unsafe maneuvers that would make OSHA cringe. It just sucks to have to be the schlub risking their knees, back and fingers for 12 dollars an hour.

The late Fred Dibnah makes this terrifying spectacle look like a piece of cake. That's how you know you're witnessing the work of a master. On top of ascending the 330 foot chimney, Dibnah also navigates the 5 foot overhangs like they're no trouble at all.

Safety Failures That Would Have Osha Filling Its Pants

Work in any physical job for a day or two and you'll likely see some OSHA-unapproved moments of safety failure that you may wish you hadn't. Extremely high ladders, improperly handled safety harnesses, unsafe tools and long-past-due fire extinguishers are just a few things one might see lurking around. And that's not even counting the unsafe maneuvers so many people try to pull off daily. Safety first.

Safety Fails That Would Make OSHA Faint

Some OSHA regulations seem sort of strict and ridiculous, but some really bad safety fails make you concede the point that some rules are there for a reason. It's non an enviable situation to be in to have a boss who wants you to do some sketchy-ass moves just so you can replace a light bulb, but we've been there.

We're assuming the fire department got all the people out before they started setting up ladders to help the raccoons escape. We have a soft spot for the world's trash pandas. Even if they spread disease and knock over your garbage cans, it's nice to see them not die in a fire.

I don’t know what you really want from me, typing out this article about a man who has clearly never used a ladder before. But also, I’m not entirely sure what he’s even doing.

Does he think that the ladder clips on to the ceiling or something? I’m more fascinated than anything.

I also have no idea why the person who uploaded this video gave it such a racist title. That’s probably the stupidest thing on display, the title. But the video of a man not knowing how to use this ladder defies race and sex. All are free to not know how to use a ladder and enjoy people not using said ladder.

Please stop giving your funny videos racist titles. I guess that's what this article is about. Stop being racist.
