A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Safety Blogger

Check this safety site out: Unsafe TV.  It is a blog by Fiona Burke that takes a critical approach to the DIY (Do It Yourself) world of home remodeling.  The Caution sign on the site warns:

Don't try this at home!
(Or on the job site, for that matter!)
Just because you see it on TV does not mean it's a good, or safe, or smart work practice.

One of her recent posts, “In Full Swing”, refers to an episode of “Room Crashers” with a guy taking down a wall in a house by climbing on it with no safety gear and in a way that could have landed him in an episode of ER.

This site might become a classic and will surely make you think before you climb the ladder on your next DIY job at home or in the yard.

If people could wear the Protective clothing that they needed that would help a lot. There are Protective Clothing such as Disposable Coveralls, Head Socks, Lens Covers, and Goggles.

I think they made this episode of a man not wearing any PPE to show how good they are at taking down walls and renovating houses. However, they should include a sign at the bottom for kids and nonprofessionals to never try that one at home. Maybe this person has undergone training and has a construction career.
