How will they dig themselves out of this one?
A classic case of using a loader as a platform, this time a large, somewhat dated wheeled loader.
The application is maintenance work on an industrial facility, with the nearest machine being drafted to provide a crude form of powered access. We have no idea where or when it was taken and even wonder if it is in the UK at all?
It does demonstrate the folly of such antics, especially given that the man is having to stretch to reach the work and as a result raising the chances that he will fall backwards from the bucket. If so the chances are that it will be fatal, the ramifications of such an incident would dwarf the time and cost involved to organise a proper access platform.
