Palm trees, Majorca



"These 2 photos show a workman pruning large palm trees in the Protur Bonaire Hotel pool complex at Cala Bona, Majorca. He climbed the palm successfully using climbing irons and safety harness but totally ignored any form of exclusion zone around the ground area. The 'safety man' allowed guests to walk around the pool edge whilst large, pruned, palm fronds were being dropped at random. There were several near misses and as can be seen, guests and users of the toddlers pool were left in close proximity to the work area. The only minor injury was to the safety man who was clearing up debris as it was dropped. He was struck on the head and was not wearing head protection. He is the guy in first photo having a quiet smoke behind the nearest palm!"
