Just mute the @ everyone command.

New post up, not as many photos with some bad MS paint thrown in but it should get to the point!

Will clear this up later

2017-07-30 22:40:04 UTC  

BTW I haven't seen any everyone notifications in this server. Am I missing something?

2017-07-31 01:45:50 UTC  

@Deleted User you may already know this but if you don't want a tag every time someone writes something in the server, you can tweak it in your notification settings

2017-07-31 01:46:57 UTC  

I think you can personally mute any channels you don't want, though ideally guys would be checking in on all servers to learn things.

We should have a safety thread.

I told him to rub some dirt on it and let's get back to work.

2017-08-01 11:39:09 UTC  

It's going to be a wonderful day...

2017-08-01 13:41:55 UTC  

Ooh, yeah, looks like he may have gotten some tendons?

2017-08-01 13:46:08 UTC  

Oosh. What happened?

2017-08-01 14:03:13 UTC  

Fuck dude!!!

2017-08-01 14:05:51 UTC  

Only a flesh wound..

2017-08-01 14:05:58 UTC  


2017-08-01 14:06:03 UTC  

I mean... ouch

2017-08-01 14:09:57 UTC  

@Deleted User he did, the doc told him to do nothing because there isn't much left to sew up.
From what I understand he was loading a 40ft ladder on his truck this morning and slipped and the ladder smashed his finger into the stop on his ladder rack.
He said it never hurt until after he left the hospital, so you know it was bad.

2017-08-01 14:12:29 UTC  

Poor guy wasn't at work yet so workers comp said they aren't going to cover it.

2017-08-01 14:20:19 UTC  

That's fucked. Hopefully he has some secondary insurance

2017-08-01 14:40:13 UTC  

He does. It's bullshit workers comp won't cover it. He's the second guy I know personally who got hurt loading things for the job at their home that they won't cover.

2017-08-01 14:43:15 UTC  

I swear those kikes at those comp companies aim to not give out money

2017-08-01 14:45:29 UTC  

My girlfriend messed her wrist up at work recently and they wouldn't give her a dime. Had the doctor's notes and everything documented and they claimed she didn't.

She was quitting there anyways and it happened on her last week so she didn't fight it.

2017-08-01 15:07:39 UTC  

Yeah they're a joke. Hope your girl's ok. Wrist damage could be potentially bad, like as far as long term problems.

2017-08-01 18:20:11 UTC  

At least he's alive. I've seen people die at work

2017-08-01 18:21:03 UTC  

Everything from arcs, people falling, and scissor lifts falling over

2017-08-01 18:58:20 UTC  

I was up in a basket on a fork lift and the driver drove me into a steel beam once, luckily I was wearing a helmet

2017-08-01 18:58:42 UTC  

Still gave me whiplash though

2017-08-01 19:04:13 UTC  


2017-08-01 19:05:16 UTC  

One time i had a scissor lift tip and i grabbed a fire protection water pipe and literally kept it from tilting over. I had to wait on some guys to help

2017-08-01 19:06:28 UTC  

I was about 20' in the air

2017-08-01 19:06:55 UTC  

Word, I was at Toyota Princeton, IN one afternoon and one of the vendors was walking the conveyor where the seats come down to thr line, they were looking up and walking and someone didn't close the hatch where the seats go down and dude fell on to two something like 3foot spikes. Died right there. Hands down the absolutely worst thing I've ever seen in person.

2017-08-01 19:08:55 UTC  

@Lebens that sucks. @Thomas Morrow I was driving a man lift at full speed around a house and hit a bump it was like a slingshot, threw me in the air, I had my harness on that day, lucky haha

2017-08-01 19:09:50 UTC  

Construction sites and factories are hazardous

2017-08-01 19:11:01 UTC  

@RevStench i refuse to move a scissor lift horizontally unless its fully lowered first, after that fire pipe save the company at the time i was working for when i wagecucked made it a rule that scissor lifts were not allowed to drive while lifted at all

2017-08-01 19:12:33 UTC  

Idgaf if it takes longer im going home to my kids after work

2017-08-01 19:14:00 UTC  

Haha for sure. I'm the same way these days. I don't take extra risks unless there is no other option. I don't even get on scaffolding without a harness anymore either

2017-08-01 19:15:42 UTC  

If i sell a contract that requires scaffolding i charge so much i just pay someone to climb it. I don't mess with that

2017-08-01 19:18:19 UTC  

Hahaha I don't get that option. I get to comfortable when I'm up high. You think 60ft+ up in the air walking on a 10in walkboard, you wouldn't let your guard down, but I do.

2017-08-01 19:21:10 UTC  

Hahaha I used to clean out machines for a living, one day while cleaning the Banbury machine (machine that makes rubber used for tubes) this guy turned on the machine and the gate slammed shut and nearly took my arm with it
