See You Ladder
There are a few rules when it comes to climbing a ladder. Make sure you have a spotter, watch out for slippery surfaces, and when you’re screwing in a long metal pipe, make sure you don’t start in the middle of the ladder. There’s nowhere to go but down after a mistake like this.
We get how easy it is to make this kind of mistake, but how didn’t anyone stop him? If they abided by the few rules listed above, there should have been a spotter present, and this looks like an easy problem to spot. Our guess is he was hoping to see his co-worker fired.
