For some reason, people ignore the sign and do it anyway.




People ignore signs all the time. Signs have no way of enforcing the law or what they are intended for. We dealt with speeding cars and cars not stopping at marked crosswalks all last weekend. Unless there is actual enforcement, the sign is taken as just a suggestion.

To Bob Dot...if there could be a heavy clear barrier used as a deflector, you would still be able to see but there would be protection. Yes, it might also cut down on the number of people ($$$$$) and that is probably why it will never be implemented.

The Subject is the SXM Airport and the people who visit the beach for this activity and how injury occurred. And Carol, you say this is not related? I wasn't looking for any kind of debate really but can you honestly say or believe there isn't any risk to what I am speaking of?

Quoting the page as well:

"6. Exposure to jet exhaust is more toxic than exposure to jet fuel. The process of heating jet fuel releases an even greater variety of toxic compounds into the air."

There are many papers on this subject and its associated effect on human health, I'm not sure why this would garnish any kind of opposing argument.

The point is that we're talking about casual exposure for a few minutes, as opposed to a working environment. Working at an airport has to be one of the most high risk jobs for all kinds of work related injuries and illnesses. Still not really relevant to the topic at hand.

Ok,

Well I understand your opinion and simply disagree.
If you ever have the interest in an 80 hr class/hands-on time to go through training with a full OSHA safety certification as I have, you might have a different or more informed view.

Enjoy your day.

And, again, work safety is not what this thread is about.

I'm not referring to work hazards, that is obvious. Health hazards that cannot be denied unless you have opposing information, there is none.
Direct exposure in general, no matter the amount of time. It only takes a single inhalation for a chance of a particulate to enter your lung and fester. You don't have to be working to breathe it and you are trying to tell me that standing behind a commercial jet taking off at full throttle shooting out hundreds of chemicals and carbon at an enormous rate is safe to do for short periods... Please think about this.

Enough. Even the link you posted stated the exposure is very small in this circumstance.

My link was the fastest example to show. But what you are referring to is ambient exposure in the air, not standing behind a jet taking off, even airport employees aren't allowed to do it or be dumb enough to do it. There is no Airport in the US that allows this due to EPA/FAA.
I'm done.

So I guess it's safe to do it if you hold your breath. Then your only concerns are keeping grasp of the fence, or getting run over by drunk/distracted drivers

Well AirFrance and an AAjet just left SXM and there had to be close to 50 people on the fence.
