    you are in KSA, am sure you saw more of this in workshops lol, they really don't care about safety, no these are special glasses for welding, you know the really dark ones.

    Not today, I fly back on the 10th.

    Nice to hear they are welding goggles, but I've seen much worse than this going on. Had a guy put his ear to a concrete wall to work out whether the drill was nearly through from the other side... well you can guess the rest.

    In Bahrain, we had some guy chopped his hand off with the circular saw!! Workers in small workshops really don't care about their safety, and their boss don't give a damn about them! So these problems always happens in there!

    you're going back home??
    hehe, thanks for the comment!

    Not exactly, but as I'm a Brit who's been working there for the last 9.5 years, you could almost say so. I got used to it... :lol:

    I'm a welder myself and was going to comment on his lack of PPE...

    Other than that, cool picture. I've taken some at work myself but no action shots, mainly just the equipment we use and such. I'll post after work if I remember.
