Now i do wonder, if this was me and I have a pot of some hot oil in my hands and slip, what would actually happen in that 0.5 seconds of the fall. would my protective instincts move the pot to the side or over my head because "my brain knows" that if it hits me i will burn myself or would it happen like in the video... ?

hope i never have to find out :S

#4 in a kitchen where speed means more than safety... which I'm sure is seen many places... she shouldn't be wearing a ring either...

#1 even if you had the fast wits to realize that, you would not be able to physically react. This kind of thing happens so often, it's horrible.

#1 When I was 6 my mother left boiling hot sugar for candy apples on the counter top, only for a few seconds to get the sticks in the apples , not only did retard here stick his finger in it to try and tasty some "liquid" sugar as I was too stupid to think this might hurt,

Guess what my brain did next ....yea I went to the hospital screaming with a burnt mouth and a finger stuck in it.

Your brain does not always do the smartest things in emergency situations even if it knows the outcome.

That is why prevention is better than cure.

There is another whole series of these videos at

These videos while graphic, do really resonate with young workers that they need to be very careful when they enter the workforce.

Saw this happen exactly like that but the girl tried to push the pot away (#1's question - body doesn't move as fast as the mind)) and the oil only splashed up to her waist. One of the other blokes, closer, dropped her on her back, reached up under her (nylon) uniform and grabbed her pantyhose and ripped them off in like half a second. Docs said it saved her legs, the pantyhose would have melted into the skin, all she got was like really bad sunburn. Pushing her uniform up saved even more. We were all sworn to secrecy about seeing her flailing around on the floor in her undies.

#12 at 6 i dont think you would have had the mental experience dealing with your situation to try and react other than crying. not saying that as an adult one would either, but you are more likely to try and prevent a catastrophe like this from happening.

i've worked in kitchens and if it has taught me anything it is that i always check the floor for anything that might not look like the tiles, or else walking in or by it could end up costing me severely.

i know this was only made as a safety ad but things like this do happen, just like #6 said, speed in a busy restaurant is preferable than safety, tho some of those retards that own and/or manage these places still expect you to do your job quickly while ALSO being safe, and sometimes it just cant be done.

#12 Prevention indeed! Strange, every commercial kitchen floor I've ever seen looked like these (what's up, Canada?):
