A Melbourne office worker couldn’t believe his eyes when he looked outside the window to see a crane driver taking a nap on a ledge 25 metres off the ground.

    On a similar note, I work in offices in Martin Place Sydney and last thursday was watching some workmen, who are currently renovating No 5 Martin Place, balancing precariously on scaffolding with no harnesses, whilst installing the saftey mesh. Watching them holding on with one hand and balancing on one foot made my life flash before my eyes. A simple slip would have ended in tragedy. I don't understand why people take such risks. Surely there are working at heights requirements that were being ignored in this instance?
