Canadians are pretty serious about workplace safety!
Canadians are so concerned about workplace safety that they've made perhaps the most disturbing public service announcement EVER. You probably shouldn't watch it, it's that horrific.



You hate me now, don't you? God, wasn't that just fucking awful? I read that they show that during hockey games! Can you imagine sitting around the house on a Sunday afternoon watching football and suddenly, in the middle of the usual Bud Light and Pepsi ads, they show some cute chick burn off her face? Thanks for the nightmares, Canada.

This is just one of a series. Do a search on YouTube for WSIB. All of them are there.

Many parents are complaining because of the times that these commercials are being run. It’s not just late night, they are running it after school and early evening around family shows.

Holy fuck! I thought you were kidding and then I clicked on the link. It'll be a Christmas miracle if I'm not psychologically damaged for the rest of my life. Thanks man, thanks.

These ads burn me up because they always make out like it's the employers fault and that accidents don't happen. Like people never ever do stupid things.

Holy freaking god. That was really something else. So who else watched it again a couple few times? Anyone..?

I'm not watching that. It's like when someone drinks milk, spits it out, and then asks you to try it to see if it's bad. I don't fall for that one either.

Anymore.

God, that was so scary.

I emailed the link to my buddy from Canada. Priceless.

Okay, am I a bad person for laughing at that?

From someone who's worked in the restaurant business for nearly 28 years:

1. A sous chef would never be carrying a pot with 30 pounds of hot grease in it. They'd get one of their flunkies to do it.
2. The physics of it all doesn't work out so well. How does the grease end up defying gravity and going up into her face and up, over and across to an open flame like five feet away?
3. Why the fuck would someone have 30 pounds or so of grease in a big pot like that? Water, maybe, but not grease. And if they were moving, for some unknown reason, a pot of grease or water or anything else that big, they'd move it on a four-wheel cart. Unless it were some little greasy spoon restaurant, in which case they wouldn't have a sous chef. They'd have a "cook."

The worst accident I've ever known of in the time I've worked in the business did involve hot grease. A cook put his hand down on a counter that had oil on it, and his hand slipped over and went to the middle of his forearm into a hot deep fryer. I didn't personally witness it, fortunately. The worst non-accidental grease incident was when a cook and waiter in a place I worked at got into an argument and the cook dipped a pan into a deep fryer and slung hot grease onto the waiter. I missed that one too, and felt especially bad for the waiter: he was, at the time, dating my ex-girlfriend and fellow co-worker. He already had enough to contend with in dealing with her, believe me.

I work in a kitchen and I've eaten shit twice in the last two weeks. Too bad I don't live in Canada.

I agree it's horrific, but I kinda chuckle too.
