Smart Thinking: Video Of The World's Worst Furniture Movers In Action

October 18, 2017

This is a video of a trio of brainiacs (presumably of Smart Guys Moving Co.) trying to lower a chair from the roof of a building into a truck. There appears to be a rope involved, but it looks like the two guys standing in the truck just plan on catching the chair. Things don't work out that well for them, and one guy takes a pretty nasty spill. I'm afraid his moving days may be over. And not just furniture either, I'm talking about his arms and legs.

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees they should have lifted a forklift with a forklift.

    Because dropping a couch from a 1 story fall for two bloakes to catch seems like a really good idea at first for them. >3>

    Was it yesterday with the forklift on a forklift? Haha. Wow how do these people not forget to breathe?

    'n Boer maak 'n kak plan.

    Sadly, this is no more dangerous than any other activity in South Africa.

    For anyone who cares, the first line of the video translates as "oh my c*nt!". "Poes" is such a satisfying swear word, I feel more people should know it.

    At work, before we do anything, we have a pre-job brief, where we discuss what we're going to do, how we're going to do it, what tools we're going to use, what can go wrong and how we can prevent those things from happening. We use things known as Human Performance tools and our favorite one is STAR, which stands for Stop, Think, Act, and Review.

    What are we going to do? We're going to lower a chair from one level to the other.
    How are we going to do this? ...
    What tools are we going to use? Rope
    What can go wrong? Loss of control, damage to item, injury to workers
    How can we keep those things from happening? Proper rigging, do not stand directly under the item, come up with an actual plan

    yeah but it doesnt really help when people stop considering what you have to say or think .....which is pretty much bound to happen when you start flinging around retarded acronyms in an attempt to get people to think about what theyre doing (anyone paying attention thinks youre a jackass and anyone not still isnt.... all youve done is help reduce your liability if somebody does something stupid)

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Too many acronyms, sure. But one or two are pretty helpful, and our safety metrics have shown a continuous decrease in workplace accidents and injuries over the past 2 decades, which has coincided with the increased emphasis on job safety and the implementation of human performance tools like STAR.

    Or, you could just be a cynical prick who thinks that his anonymous opinions about human psychology and the proper use of acronyms trumps nearly 40 years of safety stats in the construction industries.

  • dougfunnay

    ok granted accidents and injuries have decreased over the last 2 decades but let me ask you this
    what else in the work place environment that could in any way effect those things other than the implementation of tools like STAR have change in the past .....oh i dunno......20 years or so?
