I have heard it before, She’ll be right mate as a young carpenter scaled the side of the scaffold because the internal ladder hadn’t been put in.

She’ll be right. She’ll be right mate.
Will SHE, your mother be right if you injure yourself or worse by not taking steps to identify issues pre work.
Will SHE, your wife or partner be right, looking after a family and having to support them without you because you never thought YOU could get hurt.

Just as SHE will not be alright neither will HE.
I am sure you all have stories of mates, work colleges or acquaintances that have ended up hurt, maimed of even killed by taking short cuts on the job site.
Remember when you go to work you have more than just yourself to worry about. There are many loved ones relying on you to come home each night.
5 Minutes could be the difference.
