Very well made safety video.

I have see what those old split rims are capable of first hand. Seen a couple of them blow apart, thank goodness they were in cages. Just makes ya wonder how many other people have been killed or seriously wounded before safety cages were available.

I have worked around mechanical devices, machines and processes my entire life, and am always amazed at the miriad of ways one can be injured (or killed). This is a sad reminder of how important safe work practices are, and of how fragile we are.

One of my employees was working under our Toyota Tacoma a few weeks ago with only the floor jack holding the vehicle up (no jack stands). He tried to convince me that he was okay, but I demanded that he ALWAYS use the jack stands. Ironically, he just asked for this last Friday off to attend the funeral of one of his relatives that was killed when his car fell on him. The man's little boy was the one who found his dad under the car.

Let's all be as safe as we can. You have to be man enough to never worry about looking silly, sissy, wimpy, or anything else when it comes to safety. We are very safety conscience in our shop, and yet, we still have accidents. Just a reminder.

And I don't care if some of you are saying, "Yea...Right...Okay, Dad!"

Feel horriable for that little boy, but that was natural selection at work there. I hope he learned his leason from his realative, and thinks before he does stupid things.
