Safety First!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Safety First!

Post by rozzieoz » Sat Oct 15, 2016 10:29 am

I have a few photos to share so thought I would just put them in one thread. Feel free to add your own pics and stories. :)
For those who can't see, this guy is sitting on a chair suspended by ropes while he fixes the aircon. What could possibly go wrong???

So this guy is fixing the aircon, three floors up. Note the bare feet.
He is unscrewing the aircon unit to replace it. Ric took the picture, I couldn't watch.

So the driver of this taxi is the guy in the striped shirt- yes, that's him, the one on the phone!

Don't worry, I can see a blue safety sheet ready to catch him or the aircon , for who/what ever falls first.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Yeah, it's horrific to see perfectly avoidable accidents waiting to happen on a daily basis.
Would be great to see industry sponsored training facilities, and a functioning organisation such as Health & Safety Executive [HSE] at work.
Highly unlikely but hopefully someday.

You see stuff like this pretty much every day.

Yesterday I saw a guy on the back of a moto with a large pane of glass.

On the way to Sihanoukville I saw a van with 11 mattresses stacked on its roof.

Just everyday stuff.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

We are used to it, but it's amazing to newbies. ;)

Yeah, the large panes of glass on the back of a motorbike are quite something. Large ladders sideways are impressive but at least you can see them coming, most of the time anyway. Duck and cover. ;)
