Have a read, well worthwhile. Interesting point - high altitude sherpas have a 1.2% mortality rate - how do you fancy that as a workplace safety stat?

Reminded me of that NZ mortality rate from a couple years back

I have only skimmed that article. I need to read more in depth but one of the big take-aways is that the insurance provided for the Nepalese needs to be a helluva lot better.
