    Worker safety in Jakarta



    And in part 735 of
    'Did they
    really say that?' I bring you a story told to me today.

    A local landlord of a western style bar here noticed one day that a workman was standing on a ladder fixing an outside light, in pouring rain.


    So, he queried the manager allowing this to happen, you know electricity and water and all that dangerous stuff.....

    They reply was, "Oh, it's ok, we have another guy here just in case"

    if the power was isolated to that light circuit what is the problem ? working on a ladder in the rain ? not the best of ideas
