    compression fracture, moving cooling tower motors while working for an idiot of a supervisor.
    I look at every compressor replacement much differently now. Just be careful.

    Moral of story is don't let anybody force you into doing somrthing you're not comfortable with. You can always find another job.

    No way I would have worked on that without a harness and lanyard secured properly. That's bad craziness.

    I sometimes work at Pittsburgh Airport with one of my instructors and it looks a lot like this. Go up in a boom lift about 5 stories onto a platform about that size. Luckily I'm small enough to fit inside the furnace so I can move around easily. But there we have to wear harnesses.

    I told him don't call me if he doesn't want to make everything right. Cause I'm no shoe maker so leaving things like this is not my style.
