One Step Away from Death

I’m in Chicago teaching a 5-Day TapRooT® Course.
Across from our hotel is a construction site (I haven’t been able to identify the construction company but the high-rise is called the Cityfront Plaza).
I took the video above and some still photos of some block layers workin about 10 stories up with no fall protection and no railings between them and a 10 story fall.
They lean over the edge.
They work with their backs to the edge.
SO FAR no one has been killed.
But they are only one step away – just one moment of not thinking – from death.
I’m going to try to identify the general contractor and find their safey person because they obviously need to intervene before something bad happens.
PS: This isn’t the only safety problem that we’ve observed – just the one with the highest likelihood of a fatality.
