Would appreciate seeing some good shit one-uping me, but I caught the back of my hand on rebar and sliced it open, they're telling me I should've been wearing gloves but they've only ever said that required PPE is hard hat and glasses....

ive almost lost my eyesight by some bouncing back metal stringys for wall anchors ( civil engineer here)
using acid whilst its windy with shitty eye protection made my 100% vision go to 80% ( im glad its not worse )

everything could have been prevented by not giving a fuck if a 100000$ press falls into dirt & not doing acid + wind combo.

Worst I've gotten is a nice gash in my forearm from an angle grinder. Shouldn't have been trying to cut off an exhaust at the manifold with a grinder with no guard and no handle, while rolling around on a creeper. I was new to the business, and cheap as hell when it came to tools though. Lucky I didn't lose a finger.

Lots of work, fairly fun dude to work for. And yea.. I went and got a tetanus shot the next day. Oddly not much blood and I still have a mark where the nail went though.

Took a fall standing on top of a half-open eight foot ladder. Grabbed a metal stud on the way down slicing my palm and a few digits. Either grazed a tendon or swelling alone kept me from fully utilizing some fingers for a couple weeks. My asshole could've split a diamond the moment I realized gravity had assumed control. Landed flat on a stack of drywall right next to a nasty pile of concrete mesh and rebar so I missed out on being an industrial pincushion at least.

My last lay was 2004 which is probably close to the time most of this site's current userbase came into this world, but you've got a few years on me if you were laying (or failing to lay) pipe two decades ago.

She was really drunk thought she was in someone else's bed.

Things got real awkward when I said how great the night before was and I could see the confusion and horror in her face. We are trying to work through it but I get the feeling that she is trying to put me down and set me up for a divorce where she gets it all. But for some reason I can't bring myself to fight back. Why?

did something stupid the other day and stabbed my thumb with a sawzall blade, about 3/4" deep... I have no idea how many times it hit me before I got my hand away.

worst for me was getting precast concrete in my eye, and then not getting it taken out right away.
See concrete will turn into a chemical burn when it mixes with your tears, it took 7 hours before I went to the doctor, then another 5 before it was finally out. The little speck of concrete was caught on the back of my eye lid and scratching my eye every time I blinked.

check the safety and health documents you should have taken a copy of when you got hired, also, what the PPE postings on the site are.

there should be a list of things provided, list of things you need to provide, and "danger, PPE needed on this site: gloves, goggles, boots, hard hat, whatever etc" signs on the job site. Use your phone to take a picture of them, or where they should be.

I do machines and parts machining though. If you're construction, I don't know if the laws and whatnot are different.

Your "procedures" are wrong you fucking retard.

>OMG these guys had everything on in the house even though no one told them to do anything different at all.

>> No.1535224

How so elaborate? The majority of large houses here that have CL320 meters have bypass handles so its cut at the breaker and barrel locked. Which is also fun too since these people will turn everything on and when i come to turn them back on they pop the breaker. But other than large houses where some reason non surge extension rings are used I dont have this issue.

They don't "turn everything on". They always have everything on.

I lucked out like a motherfucker. The strap slipped of the hook and the pipe snapped and caught me square with my cheekbone and jaw. X-rays were clear, cut wasn't deep enough for stiches. Doctor said if it had hit me about 2-3 inches forward though I would have lost most of my teeth and maybe an eye. got a concussion and a neat scar out of it. Went back to work the same day and almost got in a fight with a uppity picaninny.

Take whatever possessions you hold dear, sell them to a trusted buddy for a dollar. After you get breech loaded in the divorce proceeding, buy your goods back for a dollar.
