    Industry outrage at YouTube videos apparently showing dangerous on-site horseplay - Contract Journal, UK
    Shocking images of construction workers being beaten, set on fire and indulging in dangerous acts on site have been greeted with outrage by the industry.

    The grainy videos, which surfaced after an anonymous tip-off to Contract Journal, can be found on the popular site, YouTube. They appear to show individuals, many wearing hard hats and hi-vis jackets involved in a variety of stupid and dangerous pranks. They are available to view below.
