NO RATINGS

This one should maybe be titled "Operated by Monkeys." What a scary experience. It's easy to complain about the hassles of complying with regulations and laws until you remember why they are there in the first place.

You hear a lot about OSHA when you travel and do maintenance work. Most of it is from the management side, looking at costs, fines, lost production time, etc.

Issue is, OSHA is there to help increase employee safety and to reduce overall costs when compared to lawsuits and payments for harmed workers.

Good posting!

IMMEDIATE Termination

There is only ONE response for this action, and that is immediate termination of the persons responsible for removing the lock.

At the very least this should include the person who actually removed the lock, and that person's supervisor for insisting production trumps safety.

Mr. Horton, you should have contacted OSHA on your own.  While one may wish to maintain cordial relations with one's customers, no customer is worth getting injured over a blatant safety violation.
