Title: Safety First!
Post by: Schnerby on March 03, 2009, 12:07:46 PM
China is famous for images of people doing things that just aren't safe. OH&S has not hit these shores. So, in celebration of this fact, let's see your pics of the dangerous, unsafe and just downright dumb happenings that occur without anyone even blinking an eyelid...

I have a few on my camera and I will get them up here soon.

one of the courses i have to teach has a section on OH&S. Try teaching that here to chinese students. They have no idea of the concept. They think if yo fall in a construction hole it is your own fault.

Having lunch in a fancy, schmancy restaurant one afternoon, the guys from the local glass compny showed up to replace one of the plates of glass in the atrium overhead. Shot taken from our table. Since the waiter had only brought the breadsticks and drinks at that point, we asked if we could be moved to another table. Honestly...we had to ask.

Except for the pedestrians standing/crossing underneath the branch-trimming work.

I still wish I got a picture of the welders using a piece of cardboard and sunglasses as a mask.

I have NO idea why photobucket won't load this.  Maybe because it has the T't word in it - it switches it to T and no more!!!  llllllllll llllllllll llllllllll

Any clues as to how to get around a photo with a file name embedded in it??

(http://ttp://cid-d32eaf2870955256.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/New album |52|6/T-Xinjiang Expedition 1790.jpg)

I tried using a different way - and again, the censor killed the T word.  llllllllll llllllllll

Electrical crew in Xing Cheng, Liaoning Province.  The wire stretches from the building I used to live in to the one across the road.  Clearly needed repairs in the middle.

With just a few sheets of metal he transformed an open bicycle into an armored tank, safe for any road in China.

This is a poor image - it was shot on a moving bus, with a foggy screen and I only had a millisecond to get the shot before we were past them.  But I love the mode of transport for getting the workers to the road construction site.  And you will note, road construction is equal opportunity work in China.

Great image, LE!



I finally saw a welder using a mask!
Is this the correct way to use it?
