So it is very windy here in WNY today. We get a no heat call at high building. I have nice new 32' extension ladder that cost the company $775. I advise my boss of the conditions and what happened the last time ( that's why I have the new ladder). He said get another guy and fix it. So my partner and I are trying to set up this ladder in 45mph winds and I say f this. I call him back and say it is to dangerous, remember safety first! So he comes out to help. Wind is blowing like crazy, I said I am not going up in this you go. So he climes up while the two of us are holding the ladder. Sure enough a huge gust comes and he is about 10' up and it blows him like a sail and we can't stop it from falling. He was able to climb down a few steps before it totally went. Now he is hurt and my nice new ladder is cracked. I told him it was not worth it. Just get some temp heat and fix it on a better day.. What do you guys do?
