Construction industry shock as YouTube airs potential building site bullying videos

Shocking images of construction workers being beaten, set on fire and indulging in dangerous acts on site have been met with outrage by the industry.

The grainy videos, which surfaced after an anonymous tip-off to Personnel Today’s sister publication Contract Journal, can be found on the video sharing website YouTube.

They appear to show individuals, many wearing hard hats and high-visibility jackets involved in a variety of stupid and dangerous pranks.

For the most part, it is difficult to identify any of the men and their jackets in the videos. But in some sequences of only one of the videos, workers can be seen wearing high-visibility jackets bearing the logo of the major contractor NG Bailey.

A spokesperson from NG Bailey has condemned the practices shown in the videos as ‘utterly disgusting’.
