|Six Reasons to Deny a Claim|
By Robert Warne - October 27, 2003
It’s amazing what some workers will do when they think nobody is watching.
If you could only rewind time to the moment prior to the injury, just think what could be learned.
The next six photographs are proof that there’s more to a claim than meets the eye.
Warning!: The actions captured in the following photographs are performed by highly untrained and unqualified individuals. Do not try them in your workplace.
Management is always willing to reward creative thinking. They don’t want to hear excuses. They just want to hear that the job is done.
So instead of putting their heads together to move a piece of heavy equipment to the second floor, these engineers opted to put their forklifts together. It’s very likely these workers’ brains have never been to the second floor before.
I’ve got my bulldozer and work comp policy to back me up on this one.
These construction workers are definitely resourceful. I guess they figure they can save a buck or two by transforming their skip loader into an extensions ladder. They sure look like they know what they are doing.
So what do we have here? It looks like some of Saddam’s WMDs ended up in Van Nuys. Someone give David Kay a call.
From this picture you can tell that the workers did do something right. They knew enough to run from the scene of a forklift accident involving a warhead.
Whether he knows it or not, this supervisor is doing all he can to draw attention to himself and it has nothing to do with his pink Polo shirt and khaki Tommy Bahamas shorts.
There’s nothing to see here folks. Just keep on moving. Never mind the Hazmat crew.
Now there’re about 10 things that can be gleaned from this photo. The only problem would be determining which one of the 10 blatant violations of safety 101 caused the accident.
Somehow this guy must have never learned that standing on a metal ladder barefoot, wet from his waist down in the middle of a restaurant fountain fixing a light with an electric drill is not a good idea.
It is highly likely that this picture was taken just seconds before this guy had a life changing experience.
And the final picture is an example of what to expect when California has its next energy crisis and budget crunch all in the same year.
