Unsafe Maneuvers That Would Make OSHA Cringe

People are often given a choice to do things the convenient way or the right way. Sometimes the convenient way involves dudes using their bodies as counterweights while one guy dangles over a ledge on a rickety ladder. These OSHA-Unapproved moments of safety failure remind us that the spectacle of doing something the wrong way isn't exactly worth it. While safety failures of OSHA-defying boldness might get things done quick, they also make you rethink risking your life just so your boss doesn't have to pay you for an extra two hours of set-up.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

People remember the wildly dangerous activities they participated in as children.

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.

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.
