30 Of The Dumbest Safety Violations That People Spotted On The Job (New Pics)

Published 3 years ago

Working on-site can be pretty dangerous – that’s why personal protective equipment and various safety protocols were created. However, even though they can help prevent injuries and even save one’s life, some workers still see them as nothing more than an unnecessary nuisance.

The members of r/OSHA, a subreddit named after the acronym of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, are sharing the worst safety violations they’ve spotted while on the job, and it’s amazing to see what lengths some workers go to just to avoid putting on some gloves and a helmet. Check out some of the dumbest safety violations that people managed to capture in the gallery below, and if you want more, read our earlier article here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
