Cool! Then he runs up to Magabe's palace and the priviledged kids play a game of Jenga off his head.

Somebody sent that link to me the other day. Note how he barely flinches when he drops one. Just don't ever dare one of those guys to head-butt you!

And I think the one that he drops lands on his...wait for it.... BARE foot.

OSHA would never allow that in this country. No wonder we don't have any labor jobs any more....

Yep. At Ye Olde Nuclear Plante before this guy could go to work the following would have to happen:

1. A JSA (job safety analysis) would have to be completed.
2. A pre-job briefing covering the JSA and the work steps and associated work package would be reviewed. One item covered would be "what is the worst thing that could happen?". Associated hold-points for QA approval, and a fail-safe point would be established.
3. Each person would have to have the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) in hand. This, as a mimimum, includes hard hat, safety glasses, leather gloves, substantial footwear, and hearing protection.

Upon completion of the task the crew would assemble for the post-job briefing where lessons learned, problems encountered, and suggestions to improve future performance of the task would be discussed. Action items would be assigned to specific individuals (usually those who raised the question) with impossibly short due dates for the actions to be completed.

The supervisor would then go back to his desk and think "boy, I did a good job on that one".

Does that sound about right for the rest of you in corporate land?

I have done what I call hard labor most of my life. My back is not in the best of shape these days. I get Epidural injections at least once a year. This guy has to hurt, if not now later in life. Will probably be a couple of inches shorter also.

Oh, I forgot! A senior manager is also assigned to observe the job from start to finish, including the pre and post job briefings. This person says nothing but is constantly writing notes. Then when the job is done the manager tells everyone what they did wrong, pulls the supervisor to the side and chastises him, and then goes and writes a corrective action report listing all the "problems" he identified. The corrective action report will require an apparent or root cause analysis, with at least 10 corrective actions. It will be helpful if someone with Kepner-Tregoe training is involved.

Can't you tell I was fully immersed in this crap for many years?

I can barely carry my hat on my head without it falling off.
