Default I believe it ...

... because idiots like this gave me a good living for nearly 25 years!

Unfortunately, many of them didn't survive unscathed and some of them didn't survive at all.

Enjoy!

It always amazes me how little regard people have for their own safety. They are always willing to take a chance.

The guy taking the video needs to pass it on to the employer because if the idiot does blind himself the company and the video guy could be prosecuted under Health and Safety at Work Act.

No doubt about it, the lad is an utter twat who should be fired before he hurts himself.

According to the report, the man taking the video pointed out that turning the workpiece around would let the sparks fly the other way.

Not exactly the safest of options but at least it showed a superior level of awareness.

I have always maintained:

"Operators die with a look of surprise on their faces
because they thought "It won't happen to me."
Whereas Supervisors die with a look of resignation on their faces
because they knew "If it can happen it will happen, eventually!"

Looks like a scene from our works! Reminds me of the old jokes where the new boy is sent to the supply depot to get some sparks (blue ones,mind) for the angle grinder and a new bubble for the spirit level. I've actually seen someone fall for those, so the total lack of common sense isn't entirely surprising.

If i was the owner of the blue car i would be taking it to a body shop to have the side inspected i imagine it will be damaged by the sparks.

We sent our apprentice Electrician to the front desk of the hospital in Edinburgh to get his "insulation" injection to insure he wouldn't get electrocuted 😂😂😂😂😂
What a laugh as he trooped out red faced.

The bloke in the video should have been given an instant written warning.
And next time his P45.
Safety starts with the individual but the employer also has a responsibility.
And if there was no guard on the machine then the employer and its nominated safety rep are equally culpable.
This is the 21st century not the 19th.

The only one I fell for was "Go and ask Chippy for a Long Stand." ...

... and I stood outside Chippy's little workshop for the 15 minutes he took to go and have a cuppa and a smoke!

The next one the Bosun tried was "Go and get me a bottle-screw from the fo'csle store." so I thought "Yeah! Right! Nice try!" and went to the forward store where I sat down for a smoke.

I was still having my smoke ten minutes later when an enraged Bosun appeared ...

... and nearly killed me by throwing a ten-ton rated bottle-screw at my head!

Happy Days!
