Oh and a sidenote, do NOT place a dropsheet UNDER YOUR LADDER

A guy I worked with in Calgary for a couple years was alone at an interior jobsite, fully extended 20 foot ladder on hardwood on a dropsheet.

He drove himself to the hospital with a broken arm and a sprained wrist.

A few days Later I took over the job, the ladder was still on the floor and the can of paint had dried on the floor. No permanent damage in the house luckily and H/O was moving from out of province so they didn't have a clue.

Point is, don't do dumb stuff like that and blame me cause i said drop cloths everywhere always

Guess you shouldn't have sent him solo. How much did that end up costing you?

Wasn't my employee, this was years ago when I was an employee, this kind of stuff would never fly on my sites..

I am sure his WCB rates went up a little, but other than that no real extra costs.
