OSHA who?

I came across this video of a back alley foundry in Pakistan that makes cylinder sleeves for diesel engine blocks.  I'd love to show this to an OSHA inspector and see the response.  No safety glasses, no hearing protection, no thermal protective gear during the pour, not even any steel toed sandals, but they get the job did...

Well, at least the one guy at the top of the foundry had gloves on while poking at the scrap being smelted, and it looked to me like he either had ear plugs in or maybe it was an ear bud.

I like Mike Rowe's take on safety - "Safety third!" Meaning if you leave your own safety up to somebody else, you're going to get complacent and get hurt.

I wonder if those guys get burned or hurt. If they do, there's always somebody else willing to take that job.  :p

DLR Pyro:
a few more videos about those industrious Pakis making useful stuff with very basic hand tools and almost zero safety equipment.  I admire their skill and craftsmanship...

Gotta love the differential used as a right angle driver on the casting compound mixer.  :lmao:

Yeah,  I noticed that too.  Why reinvent the wheel when you can find a discarded rear axle to automate your factory
