Last month, I was entirely working on a commercial boiler repair for work.
However, I was welding a modern seam down the back side of the boiler. I was standing on the top of a ladder and I was reaching as high as possible, and my partner was standing at the bottom of the ladder making sure it was stable. I was doing my best to stay balanced, although I got too dizzy and fell. Even though my partner was at the bottom of the ladder, he could not do anything to help when I fell. I landed on my right arm and I heard a couple of the bones break. It sounded almost as if they literally shattered. My partner took me to the emergency room and both of us left a commercial boiler repair at once. I have never been dizzy at work before, however the nurse at the emergency room said it was honestly due to looking up for a long phase of time. My blood pressure was good and my sugar levels were perfect, then the nurse ordered a couple of x-rays on my arm and it was broken in various places. It was too swollen to put in a cast, and the nurse told me that I will need surgery… Then after the surgery, I will be forced to stop commercial boiler repairs for at least six weeks if I’m lucky. I have to stay at home and reclaim my fractured bones. I’m not looking forward to 6 weeks of boredom, although I won’t be able to work without the use of my right arm. I still recognize foolishness for losing my balance and causing all of this mess.
