LOTO Fail, it sort of works... but not really. There should be a pad lock and a tag.

facebook-ff-loto-fail.jpg

 

This ladder fail is a team effort. 43% of fatal falls in the last decade involved a ladder.

Just because it may be to cold to use the eyewash station is no excuse.

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.

This fire exit isn't exactly "blocked" but that lock isn't helping.
