Consultant Will Not Be Told What To Wear, Including PPE

Upon the suggestion for wearing something more casual at a job that included touring industrial settings and butchers, this consultant made it incredibly clear that they would not be told what to wear. It came to a bit of a halt upon the realization that some places have safety standards. For another work story, here's a CEO that didn't know what their departments did, resulting in a Karen catastrophe.

Brash Dudes Engaging In Risky Maneuvers

This wouldn't be the human experience if people didn't take risks. Some, if not most or all of these particular risks are needless and stupid, but hey, it's hard to stop people from doing stupid risky junk. Every day there are people risking their necks for no good reason, and we get unapproved safety failures that OSHA wouldn't like.

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.

Unsafe Coworker Who Can't Be Bothered on Phone Gets Caught on Phone

This one seems obvious. Anyone who's worked around heavy machinery knows how important it is to be mindful of  your surroundings, yet there's still coworkers out there who can't be bothered to understand how hazardous their own working conditions are. Some coworkers just don't get it, like this Karen who didn't check her email for years. Sometimes it's customers who are a nightmare, like this lady who tried to get a free washer and didn't get her way.

Several Dummies Were Blown Up To Remind People To Celebrate 4th Of July Safely

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission is not messing around at all when it comes to encouraging folks to stay safe this 4th of July. They went ahead and subjected dummies to some absolutely brutal, explosive demonstrations. They just want to cut down on all the mindless, excited stupidity that can pop up on the holiday. And if you look at all these and still feel like playing with fire, we'd be shocked.

20 Kids in Unsafe Situations That Wouldn't Fly Today

Back when a kid could just walk around the woods alone all day. Back when you could give a baby a beer and a bottle rocket. Back when a child's car seat was pretty much just a mobile iron murder cage. Has parenting gotten safer and more responsible or just less fun? Little of column A, little of column B.

Looks like mistakes were made all over the place. Either way, this short and succinct fail is dripping with some well-timed irony.  While this whole thing is pretty minor, there are other instances where a car might be in more danger.

Ever had a boss that wanted to do something you knew was stupid, like standing on a ladder supported by a second ladder, supported by something on wheels? And you're like "I think this is unsafe" and he's all "this is how we've done it for years and nothing bad has happened, I mean except that one time." Man, screw that noise.
