  •  Well, if OSHA can't even count do you think they (0+ / 0-)

    are qualified to regulate ladders?

    I certainly did not say in the passage you quote that every workplace fatality I've witnessed was a ladder fall.
    Note the straw man.  I obviously never suggested that you said that you have only seen workplace fatalities caused by ladders - I have no idea how many electrocutions, accidental impalements, falls from the tops of buildings, or on the job burnings alive you have seen.

    What I did certainly imply is that you claim that you have seen more than one ladder fatality.

    In 35 years on the job I have seen exactly one job action where workers flat refused to work until they were supplied with safe ladders. I've watched too damn many die.
    And, yes, based on what you wrote, that is what you seem to have claimed.
