What’s wrong with this video…

Never mind the health and safety, let’s make a demolition video!

As regular visitors to demolition sites across Europe and the US, we are very aware that health and safety requirements vary from country to country. However, it never ceases to amaze us when even the most obvious common sense is abandoned.

Take a look at this video and let’s see just how many examples of bad practice we can spot.

I will set the ball rolling with the obvious undercutting of the building, leaving the upper part top-heavy (it’s worth noting that the video switches to stop-frame photography when the inevitable collapse occurs 1:10 minutes in) but please, let us have your own thoughts and comments in the comments box below.
