I agree with the above posts. I would also like to add that if you are carrying insurance, then this should not be a concern. Unless of course this is happening in your company repeatedly, in which case someone needs to be dealt with, and if its a solo op, then that person needs to find another job IMO.
Know your surroundings, check the area for hazards and not just objects, but sometimes people and animals are the hazard. Use common sense and be courteous of others. (stop discharging if someone walks by)
