How do I know if HERE is infected? I don't even know what it's about!

I will pass on that job. I really like to feel the ground, not just see it vaguely.

This video is kind of tongue in cheek . Most of the safety standards are way more stringent than that now . Is fun to watch .

That is the scariest thing I have ever seen. I hate heights. I broke out in a cold sweat painting the second story of my house.

I routinely work 1000-1500 feet underground. I feel much safer there.

The spikes that are mentioned for lightning dissipation was an interim theory or practice until proper bonding techniques were developed for high current fast dissipation of static discharge .  A mouthful but -  what can I say otherwise ?

How do I know if HERE is infected? I don't even know what it's about!

It is a link to a job on a broadcasting tower.  1760 ft climb straight up to work is not my idea of a fun workday..  

 

PS-  I would never post a link if it did not first pass my A/V software..  Rest assured LD..

WOW, I got light headed and about fell out of my computer chair watching that video.

I had to do work on a low 1 story roof and I couldn't hardly handle it!

:D    You never know if we have some Nigerians on here . . . or Somali pirates!!!

 

 

At my last job we had a communication tower next to the garage. I once saw a technician on the very top sitting and eating his lunch. (vomit smilie)

On the long days water intake by the climbers is encouraged , of course water shedding is necessary . We go to great lengths to protect the drop zone perimeter .

Thirty years ago I'd have welcomed the chance to do that--- always did like heights. Not so much anymore as I don't have the upper body strength. Climbing back down is the tricky part. LOL.
