Darwin awards (1) : It is stupidity that cost their life
Our world are never short of stupid people. Some goes to the extent by ending their life in unimaginable way.
2 Workers falls (one dies on site and another injures badly) when inspecting a beehives locate outside federal government building,Penang. 3 workers was up there when the incidents happens.
When I read this, two thinking brews in my mind :
- The elevator are well build, why the workers doesn’t wear the safety harness and tag it to the elevator?
- WTF is the federal government safety policies on all its building.
- WTF are these contractor worker thinking? Does Bee-N appointment status make you invincible from bee stings?
Safety policies? Oh wait. We know there is none from Malaysia federal government, we all learn it from TBH case.
A industrial grade safety harness cost less than RM150.
