Accidents happen all over the world, all the time. Sometimes we might think that there are no odds of happening to us. However, being reckless about a simple job can lead to catastrophes.

Objects or tools that do not work or blocked emergency exits are only a few examples. That is why everyone should be focused on not letting these simple things become life safety hazards.

Viral Strange has collected 20 pictures showing epic failures at home or the workplace.
