So today this metal bar sheared off of my lift and fell from about 40ft up through my safety cage and missed me by about half a foot. Luckily the pallet I was getting down was on the highest level and I was just able to figure out that it wasn't a piece of wood from a pallet (which is common) falling at me. It weighs about 4lbs and is about 2ft long .. good chance it could have seriously put a damper on tomorrow's pow day .... Kinda freaked me out for a while thinking about it. Second freak accident at work in the last 6wks that could have potentially been fatal ... Yikes
