    I can believe the ladder in the loader.

    But... How would you ever get the other ladder up there, and secured on the upper end, so some screwball could even climb it.

    It’s done well but I think it’s a photochop.

    Don't worry, the power lines will slow your fall so you won't break too many bones when you hit the ground.

    He's the general contractor, tying off the ladder for the next guy who will actually be doing the work. I'm just glad that he's one of those GCs who is concerned about safety of the people working on his job site. I had to inspect the puddle welds (arc spot) and the side lap screws on some decking on a bank in a nearby town. The ladder was barely tall enough to reach the edge angle on the roof framing, in fact they piled up a couple bucket loads of dirt to get the ladder to lean against the perimeter edge angle and was standing almost straight up. I was able to get up there okay, but getting down was fun as I flung my legs over the side trying to hit the ladder down below the roof's edge without being able to see it. I was just hoping that the ladder didn't slide on that steel edge angle as I tried to hit the top wrung, because once I started over the edge, I was committed.

    I don't know about VA but here we have a right to refuse unsafe work and before our latest government took over it was a duty to refuse unsafe work.

    Anybody has the right to refuse unsafe work. It's called self preservation.

    Here in Florida, that's standard procedure.

    Most likely photoshop as you said. I will say this tho, as a 30 year house painter, I have climbed a extension ladder, carrying another extension ladder more than once. Lol what we do for a paycheck :D
