    Default bamboo ladders are light, strong and safe to use around electricity

    What if a bee stung the guy holding the ladder on the lip? Or a fly flew up his nose?

    Who needs fiberglass when bamboo is plentiful. I wonder what product or method they use to hold the ladder's rungs to the rails. I've seen where they use bamboo to build scaffolding on commercial high rises too. It's probably just as strong,light and spark proof as fiberglass.

    Surely if it was strong enough to be used on Gilligans Island back in '65 then it is more than strong enough to pass the strictest OSHA standards today.

    Looks like a Chinese acrobatic show. At first glance I thought "Dang, look at what that guy on the bottom is doing!" Then I look around and see the supervisor holding his chin, the police van to the right, and just the right height for the ladder too. Oh, oh. Now where is that policeman?

    That's what the guy standing behind him is supposed to be preventing, he is also the safety coordinator.

    Me...I'd say to NOT give the guy holding up the ladder WITH ANOTHER GUY ON IT up like that any crap.....He'd probably just pick you up and toss YOU over the building!! And then take the OSHA guy that came with you and toss him over right on top of you and THEN toss the horse you rode in one on top of the both of you.....all done with one hand while eating his lunch with chopsticks held in the other hand!!!!!!!

    Never pick a fight with an old guy. Old guys are too smart to fight and get hurt. They'll just kill you and get it over with.
