So, as I walk down the street while in India I see a ton of construction but I don’t see much PPE (personal protective equipment). All I can think about is every time an inspector says where’s your hard hat, or where are your safety glasses, or my Foreman looks and notices I don’t have ear plugs in, and I get attitude and I roll my eyes but I still go get whatever PPE I need. I see these people working in sandals, some with no shoes on at all, no hardhat, no safety glasses, no work boots. Then I all I can think about is having an attitude because I have to put in earplugs. Wow…it is so intense when we are hit with a reality check and have to grow up. We need OSHA, we need regulation, we need employers that care. Guess my world’s not so bad after all.
Thank you, Edwina.
