Real World Safety Practices

 
Anyone who has worked in construction knows there is a difference between the safety practices people are supposed to follow and the way things are done the jobsite. We'd like to know what tradespeople are actually doing. Please answer honestly – this is an anonymous survey so no one will know who you are. And skip and questions that involve tools and equipment that you don't use.
