A day after Bill posted this, another forklift enabled haulin'-a** moron ran into me in an aisleway in the same facility. I jumped out of the way, but he still managed to nail me in the ankle with a fork (only slightly). Boy am I mad, and boy, aren't we lucky. A couple of inches the wrong way, and they would've lost their 480 EXO, or in the other case, I, my foot.

I don't have a picture but one of our forklift drivers stabbed a large switchgear once. His forks went in between the bus bars. One of the brilliant line supers said,"Good thing he didn't hit them. He would have been grounded by the static chain and killed. The static chain he is reffering to is a #12 jack chain we put on the lifts to drain of static charges. All the electricians rolled onthe floor laughing and said that little chain would have evaporated with that kind of current.
