Re: Hazard creation

A building I frequently walk through has a group that specializes in placing wet-floor signs in the worst possible locations. I think I'm pretty close to knocking my hundredth one over. My favorite is the one they place right at the top of the stairs, on the side you walk down. Instead of moving it about three inches to the right, where it would be up against the banister and basically impossible to topple, they've placed it where people frequently knock it all the way down the staircase. So far, nobody's gone falling down after it, although I do believe the falling sign has hit perspective stair climbers on various occasions.
