Only about everyone has viewed that TV show; The Dirtiest Jobs in America. Well, there was also a TV series 10 years or so ago called; America’s Most Dangerous Careers. I remember while i viewed that show i experienced considered that a few of the jobs I’ve done in my entire life that had recently been fairly dangerous within my business doing power washing and high pressure hot drinking water cleaning. In fact We were reminded on this lately. wash down water gun
You see, not long ago, I read an interesting Google+ post by Kimberly Wilson in regards to a man who’d been convicted of attacking someone with a pressure washer. Power machines can be quite dangerous close up, especially with a narrow degree idea in the gun. Popular water pressure washers are generally not alone in the dangerous tools category, consider an air powered nail marker, plenty of stories of injuries with those on construction sites. And of course the Chipper Shreders, we’ve all heard of those gruesome tales.
Anyways, after considering her post on December 13, 2014 about an ABC Media story on March twenty one, 2013 by Conner Kiesel of News 5 Iowa titled; “71-year-old Akron man pleads guilty to electric power washer assault, sentenced to jail, ” it do reestablish some memories.
“Oh my gosh! ” My spouse and i thought to myself. Very well, I can remember once, I was power cleaning in the middle of the night and some gang-bangers arrived screwing with me, threatening me, My spouse and i always kept a NO TIP in my pocket sized in the event. I snapped it in and was ready in the event, they finally kept when i talked them down, but I was ready, adrenal glands going, and 180 examples of real hell, locked and packed. I am sure this is a frequent situation we’ve all had over the years, that is to say anyone working nights doing pressure cleaning.
In a way a hot water pressure machine with a 0-degree idea is merely like a regular gun, but water is the bullet, and the bullet keeps going for if you are directing it at something and pulling on the lead to. Yes, it can tear gum off the sidewalks, drill holes in wall surfaces, or hurt someone greatly if you were to point at a human being being.
That’s just what almost happened in the story above, and something I was almost required to do myself when accosted by the bunch bangers, this before the Stand Your Ground Rules. I’m glad it figured out for me, and I actually hope other power cleaners and water pressure cleaner employees and owners will consider this and play it safe. Please think upon it in 2015.
