Safety at work should always be our priority. However, some people would put their common sense away about work safety when they are supposed to always focus on its importance.

It saddened me to see such acts. Thankfully, all is well but in the event that mishap were to happen, it is more regrettable on the hindsight.

We human acts on incentives and I cannot justify what incentives does this gentleman have for working on the 3rd floor without safety measures. More efficient, higher productivity?

Definitely not at the expense of safety, don’t you agree?

They are indeed “always close” to us, especially in some countries where some stores could be just less than 20 metres away like across the street or at turn of a road junction.

Thus, I was surprised to see a closed 7-11 when I thought of getting a drink at 10pm one evening.

In my category “Wisdom of a Taxi Driver” of this blog, I share my personal opinions and views of what I see and happen on the road that could be related to life. Although they are my 2 cents worth, I hope you could share your comments on my posts.

Have you heard of the the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover“? I bet you do. On the road, I have a saying that goes “Do not judge the driver (more…)
