Running, safety, Disney, leadership

Yesterday’s run near Disney.


Roadside construction crew safety
On the other end where the runner first approached there was no sign, no tape, no warning. Nothing.


Roadside construction crew safety
Also on the route was this different, much smallerĀ construction crew who handled it perfectly on both ends.


In exercise and in business, it’s easy to blame someone else.

The utility company foremanĀ was not on his A-game. Safety first, right? He blamed the runner for not avoiding the sidewalk.

A simple sign on the sidewalk would have easily done the trick. Standard signage they should always carry. Right?

Later in the day, while driving past, the foreman had placed the sign.

  1. Donna, the photo was way later. The guy in the photo is not him.

    The sidewalk was completely open and available and as i got further into the work zone, i began wondering if i should be there.

    Turns out only workers should be there. But the complete negligence on no signage created a confrontation.

    Afterwards i prayed that whatever preoccupied whoever was in charge of signage wasn’t going through some unimaginable hell in their life.
