I guess there is no OSHA there.

    What's the big deal? I've ridden in a bucket on a front end loader and a tractor....same thing.

    I've had to hang out of a trackhoe bucket with a chainsaw over a dump truck, cutting tree limbs that were hanging out of the truck...

    OSHA? We don't need no stinking OSHA! :D

    If you look closely there is no operator in the track hoe either. If you would have tried that with the companies I ran equipment for you would have been in the job search line quick fast and in a hurry...

    I am a Superintendent for a large commercial contractor so I know OSHA too well. That said, as much of a pain as OSHA can be, if it weren't for them, many employers would have you doing this type of stuff regularly without regard to your health.

    I bet they fix it with bubblegum and bandaids.

    I've spent my work life under MSHA, they oversee mines. If I had done this as the operator I would have gotten at least a 3 day suspension by the company and probably termination. Any one working at a height without proper fall prevention equipment would face the same thing.

    A few years back my maintenance team was painting the outside of the hotel. I came walking around the corner to see a back hoe in the raised position with a ladder in the bucket leaned against the wall. There was a guy in the bucket holding the bottom of the ladder. There was a guy at the top off the ladder streching to paint the overhang. Their suppervisor was standing on the ground watching. The next day their supervisor was applying for unemployment. I have the utmost respect for human life. I have no respect for anyone that would carelessly risk someone elses. I bought them scaffolding a few days later so they could finish.

    The hotel is 3 stories high by the way.
