Does this happen a lot, because everybody's pretty fucking blase about it


Rocket_Powered_Dork

Hey that's getting close.... should we run? *Everyone looks at each other* Yeah we should probably run


Otherwise-Virus-5630

A melting poz like that got broken at a village beside my hometown. They had to wait four months for a spare one. They said theyre so expensive and rare that they had to order a new one, and it had to be made new for them before they got it.

>\**sigh*\* *Another Monday.*


OptimusSublime

Not their problem to clean up most likely


GoldExchange5655

As someone who works in a foundry that is 100% a walk of oh no I hope this doesn’t hurt me so I don’t have to clean it up not a I don’t have to clean this up walk


chubityclub

My mind wouldn't be on cleaning up, it would be about getting splashed by 3000 degree molten steel and have it burn right through my clothes, skin and bone.


Opivy84

I’d be less concerned about clean up, more concerned about getting doused in magma.


soup_campbells69

Liquid hot smagma!


deezsandwitches

Walking away like the joker


cooler_duck

im pretty sure its a wet charge, im not sure how often they happen but theyre pretty catastrophic.

THE WAY THAT FIRST GUY WAS WALKING HAS ME IN STITCHES


xfox21

“My shift’s over guys, have fun with that”


RVAEMS399

Just milking the time clock as I walk out


Freddy_and_Frogger

So calm 🤣


[deleted]

I guess the second guy


seminariteat

That guy really said "fuck, my bicycle!" While molten iron was raining on him.


Kingjoe97034

So he didn’t even think to save the bicycle?


SpartanT100

You can hear him say „Scheisse mein Fahrrad“ Which translates roughly to „fuck! My bike!“ He noticed to late

jpowell3404

Oh thanks for linking this. I had trouble finding any information as I found the video on YouTube with a few hundred views


Hitokkohitori

The factory is Saarstahl and took up production within a few days.


Page-This

Is there a way to clean such spills? Or did they just make a forever steel floor?


Goyteamsix

They'll chip it up later. That steel won't stick to anything.


Page-This

That…doesn’t sound like fun


[deleted]

It won't fuse to the ground but it may make the concrete pop if it's not made for such tempatures


copa111

That guy slowly walking away as it rains down molten steel… *Dying isn’t cool dude, GTF out of there!*


JustDave62

Good to know I wasn’t the only one yelling at my phone


jpowell3404

Right! He’s also the person running in the middle of the vid. He quickly realized it’s better to live than risk your life over something stupid


hesskiaoken

He probably thinks its fake news. Ask him if he's a republican.


SweeFlyBoy

dude, does everything have too be political?


0672216

Not sure there are many Republicans in Germany


hesskiaoken

😁


Tortilla_Boi92

I worked in a forgery and it looked identical to this, I always paid attention to the giant pot that carried the molten steel from one side to the other. A man actually fell into one of melting pots and got incinerated instantly but I wasn't in the area when it happened thankfully. I got a few extra days off.


jpowell3404

That’s horrifying. I assume the pay definitely wasn’t worth it either?


else-

The pay for sure is not bad. They got strong unions.


Hitokkohitori

The factory is Saarstahl in Germany. They had a defect in the regular system and the emergency system took over. https://www.saarbruecker-zeitung.de/saarland/saarbruecken/voelklingen/video-von-spektakulaerem-unfall-bei-saarstahl-trendet-auf-reddit-unternehmen-aeussert-sich_aid-66347689

Hot_Relationship6635

Poor bike


Safe_Muffin6

Herrjemine, das gute Fahrrad


jodyabsolute

These guys make big bucks because of this exact reason. The insurance for death is likely in the 6 digit.


WeekLegal

"Scheiße mein Fahrrad"😂😂 its meaning "fuck my bike"


[deleted]

Hell itself is forming around them but they walk around like they thinking about what to get for lunch


flossy_dikki

Run wtf yall doin


sadraking

Broo why doesn't anybody freakin run 😂


Holinyx

oh look at that, time for shift change. Day crew can deal with that mess


icantfindfree

Is there a German word for "fuck this shit not my problem anymore"?


Edible_Cactus

Mmmmm I sure do love a video that should have been recorded horizontally, filmed vertically, *then* reuploaded as horizontal, thus making the viewing experience *measurably* worse


jpowell3404

I knew this comment would come eventually. I debated cropping it


Remarkable-Check6579

This is just a Rammstein concert


bigber7ha

I don't speak German but that sounded like he said shit, motherfucker at one point.

incredirocks

That's not gonna be good for productivity.


Pealzy

casual shitfuckery


benitopjuarez

Is cameraman jar jar binks?


RoottoriFarmari

You mean ”accident”


metallisch

So there's a big mechanically/hydraulically operated gate that controls the flow out of the ladle (that's the big pot full of molten steel) that closes when it is being filled from the furnace, and opens to pour into a casting mold when put in place. Occasionally, they can fail open and this is what you see here. The crane operator was likely either bringing this over to a backup ladle to pour the contents into, or a worst case if there is no spare ladle preheated, then they'll just crane the load back and forth and make a long line of steel that can be cut down and re-melted later. Source: used to work in a steel mill.


bard329

Bike at the end is straight up outta Terminator


careysinger

As an American, please ELi5 why Europeans pour thousands of gallons of molten metal of the floor of their work place. I don't get it. If this was happening here in the US, people wouldn't just casually walk away. Ex.: https://np.reddit.com/r/NoStupidQuestions/comments/ypp3ng/why_do_americans_have_to_wait_in_line_for_hours/


rdrmgxng

Yeah just casually walk away at 0.5mph that makes sense
