Do you know why these construction workers are doing this?

Hopefully, someone can answer this if they have any experience with this before. Thanks to everyone who reads and answers question.

I'm a union electrician and my company prohibits us from this kind if behavior. There is even a "3 second rule" enforced on certain... More
