Safety Photo for April 2012

Fall Protection; always one of the most common violated standards and yet one of the most likely to cause serious harm. I took these photos as I was in line to get some food at a drive through establishment. I would consider this a high profile job in a busy shopping complex area. Makes you wonder sometimes what the project superintendent is doing.

OK, so in one of these photos the employee is tied off, but the supervisor is not and is walking all over the roof.

One of the other photos has an employee that is tied off but the rope grab is set at the end of the rope not doing him much good if he falls.

The other photo depicts an employee who was tied off but was getting ready for lunch so he disconnected at the peak of the roof to go have his food.

This illustrates a common problem in construction today; employees and supervisors know they need to have the equipment and wear it while on the job, but fail to do it properly because of laziness, lack of caring, or any other such excuse.
