Hi
This has been around for a while as a power point slide show.

Hope you haven't all seen it previously.

Laughing the image of the green truck going over does look a bit fake, but nice to see the rest of it was genuine!

Hi

I haven't seen that for ages, I originally saw it at college on a lecture on plant equipment, there was an hour of these disasters when you use equipment wrongly. I will have a look later for some of them, there are a few on youtube, which are mega serious, in that there were fatalities.

Cheers

Dave
