This Online Community Collects The Worst Work Safety Examples That No Construction Worker Should Follow (120 Pics)

Occupational Safety isn’t a joke. If you’re fixing an AC compressor on the ledge of the 28th floor with no harness, you’re just inviting trouble over, and risking not only your life but ending up on the r/OSHA subreddit as well.

This online community is made up of 725,000 members who are constantly reminding one another to follow safety regulations by posting pictures of people who didn’t. And I have to say, it’s working — these disasters in the making were so bad, scrolling through them made me put on a helmet before changing the lightbulb in my bedroom and getting inside a hazmat suit just as I was about to take out the trash.
