    My favorite line from reading that was “Then he informed be the guys is a journeymen and if he cuts off a finger it is his problem.” I agree with you it is the supervisors job to make sure everyone is using the PPE required, or at least has it available! The supervisor willfully not providing the PPE could probably be grounds for a lawsuit if someone got injured…

    This is what could happen

    I can’t believe they went over 20 feet down without shoring.

    It is amazing with all the advances made in work site safety and then you see someone violate them and a preventable accident occurs. All safety procedures and protocols have at their root where someone was seriously injured or died and when looking at the lessons learned came up with a prevention protocol. I really doubt the hard hat was invented until someone was killed on a job site by a falling tool or brick. Someone then invented the hard hat to prevent that.

    I’m still surprised that hard hats aren’t somehow braced to the torso to protect the neck (on a bearing to allow full range of movement, but block sudden knocks)

    Also surprised the euro sliding table saws never caught on here. Forget saw stop and reaxx on the blade (although I would get that tech too probably) – their slider with half fence pretty much eliminates all kickback.

    well apparently with all the people there, none of them saw a problem or spoke up till the inspector got there, and the wall started to collapse

    thats good, at least it won’t be pinned on you. I mean it sucks they are working like that but as they say you reap what you sow. so if they don’t believe in safety…….

    I have seen both great and terrible safety officers over the years. The good ones get made scape goats just as fast as the bad ones.

    Ultimately, I feel, safety comes down to the individual. I have worked in the safest plants in the country, and some of the worst and was never injured.

    I broke both of my heels at a commercial floor covering business in 2010. Why did I get hurt? My own complacency.

    I adopted the more lax safety habits of my employer. That was my own fault. I never sued and I work for him today. Great guy.

    I'm the only person I ever hit in the head with a hammer.

    Hope you encouraged better habits from your experiences though.

    If the worker is untrained and doesn’t know it’s not safe how does it come down to the individual? Asbestos and agent orange come to mind first.

    I wasn’t advocating workers not being trained in safety. I’ve plenty of people who were trained, but opt out of using that training.

    When I worked in refineries, I knew they (the refineries themselves) didn’t care about my safety. So, I took the “you’re not gonna hurt me” approach. That worked out well for me.

    But when I left and went back to a more relaxed environment I didn’t carry that philosophy with me. That’s when I let myself get hurt.

    See, that was my own fault. I knew better than to let the boss lift me up on a pallet with the forklift. But, I did it anyway.

    So, yeah, I feel ultimately safety is left up to the individual.
