Thats the premise behind the Internet comedy Safety Geeks: SVI, which follows a crackpot team of safety gurus who go around trying to rid the world of anything too dangerous but ultimately mess things up worse than before.
Dave Beeler and Tom Konkle, who produce and star on the show, liken the geeks to live action cartoons that often focus on the wrong thing to fix.
Beeler says, A building will be on fire but theyll be very concerned that there arent any wrist rests on keyboards, which can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
As a result of their show, Beeler and Konkle admit they often notice the unsafe nature of the real world.
Konkle explains, I was in a Smart&Final and I peeked in their break room and saw that their health and safety posters werent at the regulation height. I thought, What is wrong with me?
