    Should be 10 when you look at the stats.

    A "whoops, shoelace, trip, stumble, dust off" typically covers about 10 feet.

    Years back, we had a senior technician who had the constant praise of management and corporate. And in truth, he was one hell of a technician. I'm glad to have been trained by him. He worked for the company with a spotless record for 37 years. Apparently, as those with a little more seniority than I knew, he only had one blemish on his record. It seems that, many years back, he inexplicably drove his workvan directly into a light pole in a gas station parking lot at about 20 mph. What was even more odd was that he didn't even hit the breaks. Apparently...he saw a very, very pretty girl (or so the story goes). :D

    I had that happen on a 100 hp Trane reman, I was going to check the oil pressure, and the flare cap didn't have that much resistance unscrewing with my fingers, then ka ****ing blooey it blew the cap across the roof, being a dedicated idiot I tried to plug the hole with my thumb, I was already douched with pretty warm oil, and I stood there for a minute and said **** we are going to need to drag 7 more drums of 22 on the roof, I pulled my thumb and ran and killed the disconnect

    Man that pissed me off

    That's what the clipboard warriors at a couple of different factories told me.

    Personally, I think it's a crock. Bastards are probably saving 12 cents per unit and the whole UL story is a cover up. But, what do I know?

    Was going through start up in a market and took a cap off a suction line in bakery case. Schrader core went sailing clear to the decking and who knows where after that as the rack was running. Only person there was me and the lady cleaning the bakery. Good times.

    UL and ETL can be real dickheads about shit, when I was building the VAV boxes I had to put a 3 amp fuse and holder to protect the transformer, the fuse and holder were $6 the transformers were $3, makes a lot of sense, and there was no way it could have been for fire protection the transformer was in a steel box

    The royal hose job is for even a simple UL label costs about $20,000

    If
    If you have a warning line and designated safety monitor its 6 feet, otherwise, distance don't matter, you're a dope on a rope. What kills me is the "safe" height of the walls went from 36" to 39" simply because generally, people are getting taller

    And somewhere there's a guy bragging about the time he sold some smart fellow a sticker for $19,995. Lol

    When I was working at Union Carbide any time you were over 6 feet in the air you had to wear a safety belt and tie off somewhere. I one time said yeah this thing will really save my life, it might save my life but I will be paralyzed by falling 10 feet and then the belt can snap my back


    They then got harnesses, sometimes it pays you to shut up:lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen:
