Aunt Ida’s Recipes for Disaster – 4


Thank you for stopping by and checking out this months latest recipe from our Aunt Ida. Exclusively developed in our test kitchen and now available to your business.

THIS MONTHConstruction pancakes.  – I can think of no better way to start the day then with a full stack of these.  Quick and easy to prepare, especially when you become really good at making excuses for not wearing fall protection gear.

total prep time – Almost none, unless of course you decide to put on your harness and inspect that the life lines are properly anchored.  

cook time – Times vary depending on method of baking,  but you should always keep an eye on it when preparing this dish.  Cook time is also affected by the number of trips, slips or falls that occur at the worksite.

yield – Without the use of fall protection gear, you can expect at least 1 fall off a building, flattening that person like a pancake and killing them instantly if they’re lucky, so they don’t have to experience the pain of crushed bones or impalement.

FALLS remain the number one cause of death or injury in the construction industry.  In this day and age of communication and news outlets everyone should be aware that when you are working over 6 feet off the ground you are to be supplied with some form of fall protection,  whether it’s railings, scaffolding with railings, or fall protection PPE.  You can refuse to work under those conditions.  You did not train to be an acrobat in the circus or were hired to be one, so why would you want to work like one without a net?
