Lying down on the job



This worker figures that laying down means he will be less likely to fall. He is probably right but he could have fell off the ladder to get to where he is and by law he requires edge protection on that front edge.

If he were to fall back, the drop is about 3m / 10 ft, if he falls over the front edge he has 5 floors before he hits the road. This photo was taken out of the window of a 23rd storey of a nearby building.
