At what cost to the company? There's already OSHA and dozens of other federal and state laws ensuring a safe workplace.
Really? So this guy died in an industrial dryer that was properly locked out and in a zero energy state, according to OSHA regs?
That's the point of getting a Union. It's cheaper for the company to ignore the regs when OSHA isn't there to cite them.
Notice how they are still so tight lipped about the circumstances surrounding the accident? That ain't so they can make things safer for the rest of their workforce.
And I can almost guarantee that this unfortunate employee was NOT following OSHA recommendations while performing his duties.
My husband is an upper-level manager in a union company and he not only has the pressure of the union but the threat of fines from OSHA when there's a serious accident.
