Dangerous job, car tire/rim crusher! Possible explosion

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

There are plenty of hazardous jobs out there that require a lot of attention to detail and eyes in the back of your head to make sure that none of these hazards unfold when you are least expecting it because some sort of major destruction or even worse, personal injury may occur.

You would think that working at a recycling plant would be pretty straight forward work and relatively mundane work but when you are recycling wheels and tires, the job can get a little bit slippery here and there.

In this one, we walk along the line of the job of a recycling plant worker as some of the wheel and tire combinations are flat but others are holding in extreme pressure that’s all let out at once in the crushing process. As you can probably imagine, all of that pressure released in an instance creates quite a doozy.

It might not seem like a job that has very much glory to go along with it but the video below will mesmerize you along with giving you a new found level of respect for the guys and girls who carry out this duty on a regular basis.
