Our sister sites Total Landscape Care and Better Roads shared this video this week and we just couldn’t resist. These poor guys have completely lost control of a concrete buffer while another crew, of office workers, enjoys and films from the safety of their building. In the description of the video, one of the guys filming the episode is quoted as saying, “We’re glad that nobody was injured in this potentially hazardous situation. If my memory is correct we bought lunch for some of the participants. This was a great construction crew and they built a magnificent facility for us to enjoy every day.”

What would you have done to stop this out-of-control buffer? In the meantime, just be glad it’s Friday and not whatever day of the week these guys were experiencing.

Do you want some tips to stay safe on the job site?
