It is hard to see the sense in following “safety rules ” that cause more danger than they prevent. Often rules are made by peo ple who are only looking at one small part of a situation and not at all consid ering the overall ramifications of their dictates. Consider the post this morning from Ina Ahern whose local fire department is mandating the use of a tubing which has been shown to cause safety problems (see her post) when al l that is needed is a program to increase awareness as to the importance of inspecting tubing; at most a requirement that inspections occur and are doc umented at regular stated intervals.

"I recently bought several safety cabinets, and I found that it is the state that mandates sel f closing doors. Luckily, we were able to purchase ones with manual doors."
This spooks me. The abo ve statement implies that even though self-closing doors are mandated by state law (probably a UFC state) but inconvenient, you have decided to ignore the law . I hope that's not what I read.
It's hard to convince employees of the importance of safety rules and standards when we ourselves ignore the "inconvenient" ones.
