This is not a post for the faint of heart, but there are times when dealing with the issue of safety and the repercussions of unsafe behavior when things, to put it bluntly, are not pretty.
I must warn you however, that the document that we are discussing is extremely graphic. It relates to the results on the genitals of a male who was wearing his fall protection harness too loose.
The document shows the genitals after the accident. I warn you so that you will be forewarned. I have never, in the past, posted something like this, nor do I intend to post gruesome photos in the future. That is not what this blog is about. This is, however, too important an issue to ignore and shocking and troubling as the photos are, I believe that they need to be shown. Sometimes we just won’t listen until we are face to face with the horrible truth.
I have uploaded it to docstoc.com for all to view. The view it go here.

They refuse to divulge its source or authenticate it. I can understand why they make that choice. Privacy issues are just one of the reasons why such a document shouldn’t be traced back to its real source. As they state on their website:
“One thing we never do with such incidents, is publish the source of information, nor do we get paid for publishing it, I think the alert should
indicate if its authentic or not. You can use it or not, thats your privilege.”
I agree! I also think that every one of your workers who is wearing a safety harness should see this.
I apologize if this offends some; that is not my intent. My intent is solely to perhaps save someone out there from having the same kind of accident.
I welcome any and all comments.
