Who sees it?

When we begin a "human factors" analysis, we should do more than ask "Is the equipment labeled?", as human factors rely on the equipment being PROPERLY LABELED.  This is a perfect example of something be labeled, but asking for an accident.  Even as obvious of a mistake this is and everyone who looks at this picture will just shake their head, this is a classic example of a "human factors" FAILURE.  And yes, I have already been asked by more than one manager... "show me in any OSHA standard where this is a violation and I will fix it".

Many thanks to Bob Cornett for the share!

Now I am no construction safety or crane expert, but not so sure I would be posing with this piece of work!  Heck he is already under a load just by standing there.
