Granted I'm not based in the US...but I have never, ever, seen anything like this in a job advertisement before. It basically reads to me 'if you are blind or physically disabled, don't bother applying'.

But I guess it's ok, as you finish with the below?!

I find it amazing that anything like this would get through any reasonable HR screening process!

My guess is that the "equal opportunity" is related to sex, race, religion, etc., but that specific physical capabilities are required anyway.

Our US friends are usually either well beyond our EU common standards when it comes for "politically correct" or surprisingly blunt and direct on things that we would usually consider "inappropriate". :w00t:

It's just like their safety rules, and the obsession for putting warning stickers/signs everywhere.

One for all, the rear mirror thingy:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...hey_appear
U.S, PART 571 Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, Section 571.111 S5.4.2 "Each convex mirror shall have permanently and indelibly marked at the lower edge of the mirror's reflective surface, in letters not less than 4.8 mm nor more than 6.4 mm high the words ``Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear."


Which is Ok in itself, but surprising to me in a country where (in a number of states) you can buy a semi-automatic assault rifle without any particular formality and you have metal detectors and/or policemen at the entrance of a number of schools....
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...s_by_state
but you have a national association providing rowing safety guidelines:

Lawsuits are the typical reason for warning labels. For example the person that burned their mouth on hot coffee and part of the settlement was a warning label that the coffee cup may contain hot liquid. Or the person that stood their ladder in the mud and fell who got the warning label that reads ladder must be placed on firm level surface affixed to all new ladders as part of the settlement.

Of course I think the job to dream up new warning labels is somewhat fascinating.

It is because of lawyers. All because of layers. No other reason. Surprised there is no specification as to how much maximum weight might be required to lift.

What is a semi-automatic assault rifle? Mr. Green
