Being able to spot what is safe and unsafe takes practice. And experience is invaluable. We’re going to post a new picture each Wednesday and after everyone has had a chance to comment, we’ll review and discuss the findings.

Today’s picture is from an elementary school.  After you walk in through the main doors, you immediately encounter this stairwell.  It is literally twenty feet at the most from the entrance.

The first thing that catches your eye is that the doors are wide open.  Of course this is a fire hazard and could be corrected by closing them or installing magnets that release when the alarm is sounded.

Let’s put that aside for a moment.  I want to focus on the ‘other’ things that are happening here.

What do you see?
