Safety violations happen all the time, all over the world.
On Fridays, we like to spotlight some crazy (and sometimes funny) safety violations.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to see our latest violation every Friday.
Below is a collection of past #FridayFail violations, Don’t try these in your workplace!
That pallet is being held in with one strap...
Don't conduct a sailing contest in your warehouse (or any industrial workplace)
In case of fire, break ice.
The "proper" way to use a chipper...
ALWAYS wear your hard hat!
Maybe you didn't need to put ALL of your supplies on the roof...

Just because it may be to cold to use the eyewash station is no excuse.
How many things can you find wrong in this picture?
We have a Holiday Safety #FridayFail for you this week. Don't worry, It's just a decoration.
At least they'll be comfortable when the fire happens and they can't get out.
According to OSHA an employer should:
Provide portable fire extinguishers and mount, locate, and identify them so that they are readily accessible to employees without subjecting the employees to possible injury. [29 CFR 1910.157(c)(1)]
This fire extinguisher is not readily accessible in case of an emergency and is therefore this weeks #FridayFail
Don't end up like this guy. Remember to bring your PPE.

There's a little more to a first aid station than just band-aids... (although this is pretty funny.)
Which came first? The pipe or the door?
Something tells us this isn't what it claims to be...
Where's the fire extinguisher?
He's just painting on a ledge, what could go wrong?
This isn't exactly the safest approach...
"Think Safety, Work Safely" is a great motto.
This fire exit isn't exactly "blocked" but that lock isn't helping.
ANSI recommends that eye wash stations are accessible within 10 seconds.
We hope everyone knows the lock combination by heart.
Does he have enough pallets for his "ladder?"
Welding masks must be in short supply...
Standing on a ladder that is held by a ladder that placed in a gutter
and is held by a guy who is standing on a ladder.
He just couldn't wait....
There's a right way and a wrong way to put a lid on chemical storage containers...
Is that his hard hat sitting there?
Does this look safe to you? We don't think so!
How many safety violations can you spot in this picture?
Because maintaining a working eye wash station isn't important...
Something tells me there's a better way to secure that ladder...
Well, at least it's not a fire exit... close, though.
They must have plenty of other fire exits
Seriously... what is it with fire exits?
A cardboard Box is NOT a replacement for a welding mask!
Remember! Think safety first!
And another blocked fire exit...
Always make sure you can access your emergency shut-off switch.
