20 Work Safety Violations That Are Just A Step Away From Disaster

Published 3 years ago

Personal protective equipment (PPE) and safety protocols exist for a good reason: it’s to protect the workers from injuries, and in worst case scenarios, death. However, even when their life is put on the line, some workers see these safety requirements as nothing more than mere suggestions.

People over at the r/OSHA subreddit are sharing the worst safety violations they’ve spotted while on a job, and just looking at the pictures is enough to give you anxiety. Check out a collection of people who clearly never heard the term “safety first” in the gallery below!

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?
