We joke around a lot here a lot at TIA and tend not to take things too seriously.  But when it comes to safety even the smallest thing can be a danger including a tape measure.  Monday a man delivering drywall to a construction site was killed when a tape measure dislodged from a worker 50 feet up fell and struck him on the head.  A hard hat would have probably saved this mans life.   Use proper safety precautions no matter how overboard they may seem.  They will save your life.  Check out more on this story over at Fox news.
