Nice Job But Not A Lot Of Thought To Safety


A big open stairwell with no railings wouldn't cut it on a commercial job

It doesn't cut it, period. That's potentially a killer drop.

Re: Nice Job But Not A Lot Of Thought To Safety


Even though we'll never know, let's take bets on how many dings and scrapes the rosin paper with no ram board or masonite underneath didn't absorb nicely on the "finished floor".

My guess is that this guy will be fixing 4. (Look at the oopsies on the rosin paper)

A few, mostly commercial to heavy industrial (power plants and refineries). What I do know, is the last person you want on a commercial or multi-family framing job is a residential framer because they often as not will not listen to safety rules no matter how many times you tell them.

They bolted all the treads on after.
How did they get underneath to bolt the #1?
Not much room between the floor and bottom of tread.

Re: Nice Job But Not A Lot Of Thought To Safety


Iíve been doing a lot of shop drawings and some install for stairs just like this...

Day one of a 6 story split level , right in front of architect and builder, my buddy (the steel master mind) messes up on the ladder and falls down the stair well but manages to spider man down from floor to floor, lands it.

I hate thinking about it.

Seems the smart thing to do would be to mount that first tread before you put the tube in place.

The magic of video editing is that they get to cut out all the "d'oh, pull it back up boys!"

I dunno what it is about the guy, but I just can't stand to see Matt Risinger on video. I like that he's pushing quality work and thinking about new approaches, but the guy himself comes off like a shady used car salesman.

Because when he talks, the whole side of his mouth shifts over. Because - like in that video - his ass is wider than his shoulders.

Because....................

Really? I've heard him on podcasts before and he comes across as a really decent guy.

Maybe it's the hybrid PA/TX accent?
