I had previously posted about this construction group and how sloppy a site they’re maintaining. It is obvious that these workers received no training, have no supervision, don’t care about their own safety and couldn’t care less about putting the residents that live here in danger. (For the record, I don’t live here).
Some numbers for you to think about while you look at the photos below. 2012 – Of 775 construction deaths 269 (34.7%) were from falls. 2013 – Of 796 construction deaths 294 (36.9%) were from falls. When you see someone like the worker below on a roof, alone without any fall protection you know why the numbers are going up.
This is an exit used by the residents. The contractor leaves a ladder, bucket and trash right outside the door. There is NO sign on the inside of the door to warn you of workers outside. One resident told me the contractor left a ladder partially blocking the main door over the weekend.
Generator running sitting in the walkway and there are no signs or cones to warn you of the operating machinery and the hose runs across the walkway and again there is no signage.
Notice the boards overlapping to cover the open gap. They are shifting since they are not anchored in any manner.
The bases are not totally flat on the ground. At least half of the board is hanging over the dirt area which is at least an inch shorter.
This guy apparently has a death wish. Working on the roof of a 3 story building without any safety equipment.
How lucky do you feel today?
This is what a poorly run, unsafe operation looks like and unfortunately gives all honest law abiding contractors a bad name.
