A (hopefully thoughtful and thought provoking) view of OSHA from the inside.
You did a great job in answering the questions. Kane looks like a caveman with his one word responses.
Great job except for one thing. Joe Dear? Please. What he did was a knee jerk reaction to a hostile congress. Roll-out or as its been called Roll-over was a joke and has left a bad taste in the mouths of many. A putrid taste we still experience daily. I'm still a Scannel fan.
Kane and me.
Well, I've apparently been in OSHA longer than both of you(almost since OSHA started) and I was extremely unimpressed with your answers. I heard classic bureaucratic answers, more regulations, more staff, more money, more more more, etc. i.e. more government is the solution to everything. Neither of you can think outside the box. Thousands of years of civilized earth history prove than more government creates more problems than it solves. I say again "More government creates more problems than it solves!". The workplace can be made much safer! But not with more government unless you want a Police State. So I guess both of you are slow learners too or fail to study history. Granted, you cannot be flexible working inside the confines of a bureaucracy but then that is why OSHA will be worse if it gets bigger as both of you wish. But then one cannot teach an old dog new tricks as they say. By the way I have managed successful businesses over the years and money is not a problem. By creative thinking outside the box, I have made more money in ouside investments than what OSHA gave me. But steady government money can be addictive when compared to the real world of boom and bust finances. I still hang around to watch the "dumb and dumber show" but not for too much more. After a while it ceases to be funny and is no longer entertaining. But then both of your blogs are great! Carry on! Carry on!
Poster #4 should have provided his answers.
I am poster #4. I provided many answers during reinvention. They were all rejected by higher level bureaucrats. Answers that to this day would have solved many of the problems you all struggle with even today. But, because my answers decreased the control of power hungry bureaucrats even when the managers knew they would work, the ideas were rejected. The managers are more interested in their power than what works! Do I need to repeat that? So to all, enjoy your ride on the Titanic. Maybe one day you will get it, maybe not. Aren't those violins in the band sounding so nice. My what is that cold water at my feet? You can listen to the band some more. Me, I am heading for the lifeboats!
