    That gang box sure took a beating. That wouldn’t have been fun to be in front of.

    <p style=” margin:8px 0 0 0; padding:0 4px;”> Thanks for the DM. @ridgidpowertools Incident: At about 6:50AM on the morning of (date) a gang box exploded on site located at (address). The cause of the explosion was determined to be a (subcontractor) worker using a lighter to see the code of his gang box’s lock, which caused a cylinder of acetylene to explode. There was extensive damage to the gang box and its contents, with additional minor damage to the adjacent walls and HVAC ductwork. The injured worker was identified as (unlucky SOB), an employee of (subcontractor). Mr. SOB was rushed to the hospital, but his injuries were reported to be cuts, bruises, and a broken ankle.- no-mad . . #isthisokosha #construction #contractor #jobsite #gangbox #explosion #damage #tools #ridgid #ridgidpowertools #ridgidtools #ridgidbox</p> <p style=” color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;”>A post shared by sendVideo HeyOsha4ig@yahoo.com (@osha_is_this_ok) on <time style=” font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;” datetime=”2017-02-14T15:13:07+00:00″>Feb 14, 2017 at 7:13am PST</time></p>

    well that didn’t embed well at all but the link works. basically some guy couldn’t see in the dark and had no flashlights so he used a lighter, lit up a bottle and the whole thing exploded.

    Heck of a wakeup.

    I guess those footings and piers were not necessary after all.

    Surprised to see somebody in the pic actually strolling along on it. You’d think it would be closed to access.

    Lol looks like everything hot washed out from around and underneath. I’m sure it’s still strong enough, but I’m not too sure I’d be strolling across it.

    sign of a well build bridge and you would assume they would pour a deeper footing for a bridge.

    Is that one of those floating footers?
    Maybe if they put the water back in no one will notice.

    They used structural air fill under the piers

    I took this picture this morning because as I am watching the trailer bump over the railroad tracks I noticed the guys on it!

    Would that be a city truck delivering recycle bins? Would not be funny if one of the guys fell off, not to mention any of the bins.

    I thought it was city at first but the truck had a private company on the side of it, maybe a contract for the city? Definitely not funny if a guy or bin fell off. That road is a 45 mph “highway”, super busy and everyone speeds.

    No I don’t think it would be funny at all. That’s the norm around here. Guys ride in the back of trucks all the time. Sanitation workers stand on the bumper all day long.
    I misread the thing,,,,,,

    I understand standing on the back of a garbage truck – it’s the norm all over the place, however that’s only when they are going slow, not in transit. A trailer is a totally different situation though. It bucks twice as much as the tow vehicle when it hits a bump.

    Yes I understand too standing on the back of a truck in residential. The trucks are going so slow. But this was 45 mph over 3 sets of railroad tracks and then off down the road! Well some people just don’t think too hard I guess…

    Nope not here, The garbage men get paid on the huki Pau system. When they are in transit to their routes they are moving fast! It doesn’t look like those guys are very worried.
    If you guys think that’s dangerous that’s too bad. Stay safe up there.
