I was watching and photographing as they installed another crane in the building site for the new Grand Caribbean Condo Resort â€“ Pattaya
Take a close look at the new small crane on the middle left of the photos. Thatâ€™s the one they were putting up today and with a storm brewing. In the second image you can see one of the guys who was installing it â€“ way out on the edge of the arm, two others were crawling around the center mast. And I was astounded that he had no harness, secure rope or safety equipment, and was barefoot to boot, I suppose that would be better than flip-flops. Hereâ€™s the close-up as he was walking back in. Unbelievable
You’d sure as hell never see this in the States â€“ the inspector and Unions would have a shit fit. But alas, thatâ€™s working in Thailand.
Glad Iâ€™m retired.
