Video: Heavy Truck + Rickety Bridge = Predictable Outcome

Don’t know the story behind this video or even where it comes from, but the lesson on risk assessment is too good to ignore.

The time to identify risks is before the project is launched and before an operation starts.   Common sense right?  But how many times do we wait until are in the middle of something to really identify what can wrong?    The message from this video is that you can’t want until you are on the bridge to figure out if it is safe to cross.

While we are on the subject of trucks falling through things, a second video, this one of a bus falling into a sinkhole in Brazil is also too good to pass up.
