OSHA-Unapproved Moments Of Safety Failure

Anyone who's had to work with their hands has likely witnessed, or even low-key partaken in some safety fails that would make OSHA faint. These highly questionable and unsafely done jobs probably shouldn't be considered a point of pride, but people keep doing them, usually out of convenience. Here's a story of an incompetent manager who fired their only OSHA certified forklift operator and had it backfire.

Highly Questionable and Unsafely Done Jobs

When a job needs to get done, sometimes that need gives way to a wonderfully unprofessional "not my job" moment. And other times, a lack of critical thinking or need to get that job done quick results in a spectacular display of brash dudes engaging in risky maneuvers. Either way, you see some questionable stuff.

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.

Innovative and Sometimes Dumb Solutions

You can't fault people for their resourcefulness. But you can blame them for when their innovation is a patently stupid idea. Some ideas become OSHA enraging safety fails while others become low budget DIY solutions. It's kind of up in the air, really.

Unapproved Safety Failures that OSHA Wouldn't Like

If you've ever worked in any kind of physical job, not matter how small, you've probably been told to do some spectacularly unsafe garbage. Awkward ladder use, unorthodox building materials, and improper machinery use are the tip of the iceberg for safety fails that would make OSHA faint.

People Doing Stupid Risky Junk

We've all had the thought when we've had to reach an extra high ceiling or move a couch out of a hard-to-move-out-of place. "Well as long as I keep my balance we'll be fine." It's tempting to climb on top of a car and just weigh a mattress down with your body, but most of us can at least acknowledge that that's kind of a bad idea. Here are more unapproved safety failures that OSHA wouldn't like.

15 Hazardous Job Sites That Are Literally Not Safe For Work

Don't let OSHA find out. Or the union. They'll have a kitten if they saw these places. So much for employee welfare. Some of these solutions to get to hard to reach spots to work are pretty clever. Most are just massive safety hazards waiting for a lawsuit to happen. But sometimes people have a one track mind, and just need to get done doing whatever they need to do, caution and common sense be damned. This guy knows all about when common sense goes out the window.
