    New Normal? Fatal Workplace Incidents

    Three workplace incidents (not 'accidents') occurred in the last three days resulting in the deaths of workers.

    13-12-2022
    Man fell from heights while working on a house.

    Man was crushed by a large steel crossbeam.

    An explosion occurred which launching a man 10 metres and killing him.

    I've long thought workplace safety practices are quite lax. Even in offices with office workers precariously using ladders while overreaching for a heavy box. I'm frankly surprised how 'few' fatal and serious accidents occur (or are at least reported).

    Unfortunately it has always been the case. Though some countries are a lot more dangerous than others in the workplace

    I posted an into, three dates with links and summary in an series and then a conclusion. It seems everything after the first link was chopped off.

    However when I did a site search for the post, a simplified version showed a the full post but without the links.

    Yes, but after 13-12 and that article, I also posted 14-12 and 15-12 each with their own articles.

    Not a big deal, but for debugging should it be of interest…

    If I press “quote” on my post, I can see the full post.
